Mountain permafrost and slope instability in the Italian alps: the Val Pola landslide


Mountain permafrost and slope instability in the Italian alps: the Val Pola landslide



Permafrost and Periglacial Processes 6(1): 73-82



ISSN/ISBN: 1045-6740

DOI: 10.1002/ppp.3430060108

In July 1987 a landslide affected the Val Pola (Central Alps, Italy) causing several casualties and severe damage. The main conditioning and triggering factors for this large debris avalanche are described and possible mechanisms are suggested.
