Session 5. Multi-timescale glacier and landslide processes

Conveners: B. Bookhagen, E. Berthier, P. Lacroix

Deformation and kinematic of glaciers, landslides, and rock glaciers vary over multiple time scales responding to internal and external forcing factors. Five decades of remote-sensing data and recent satellite launches with short temporal and high spatial resolution enable unprecedented detailed studies of transport and deformation processes over extensive areas. Continuous monitoring and decadal trend analysis allow a more refined understanding and impact of forcing factors such as earthquakes, climate change, and infrastructural development.

In this session we particularly encourage presentations related to:

  • deformation of glaciers and landslides from sub-seasonal to decadal time scales;
  • precursory patterns of gravitational failures from space;
  • volume change and mass balances of glaciers;
  • calibration/validation of mechanical models of glaciers/landslides from geodetic measurements;
  • localized and bulk deformation;
  • glacier-landslide interactions, including impact of debris on glacier melt processes and impact of glacier retreat on slope stabilities.

This session wish also to address the specificities of monitoring from space and in the field small and rapidly changing objects such as landslide and glaciers, compared to active faults.
