Slope instability in relation to glacial debuttressing in alpine areas evidence from field data and 10Be cosmic ray exposure ages



Slope instability in relation to glacial debuttressing in alpine areas evidence from field data and 10Be cosmic ray exposure ages



Geomorphology: 1 2, 3-26



The Upper Durance catchment is an area prone to rock-slope failures. Such failures reflect the combination of high relief, litho-structural controls and paraglacial stress release. The aim of this study is to determine the role of deglacial unloading and resulting paraglacial stress release in conditioning or triggering slope failure.
