Rock glaciers dynamics

Rock glaciers dynamics

This is a long-term project aiming at understanding the rheology of rock glaciers at decadal, annual and seasonal scales. Data is generally collected with Differential GPS, permanent GPS, Lidar and UAVs. We also use Digital photogrammetry, photographs taken with automatic cameras and InSAR data. Around 15 rock glaciers are currently investigated.
