1. Processes of lateral moraine formation at a debris-covered glacier, Suldenferner (Vedretta di Solda), ItalyMaster-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen
Sammanfattning : Lateral moraines are key features of glacial landscapes in high-alpine mountain areas. Research on lateral moraine formation is mostly limited to clean-ice glaciers; lateral moraine formation at the margins of debris-covered glaciers is currently poorly understood in an Alpine and sedimentological context.
