Abstract

Debris flows are very frequent geomorphic agents that form relief of the High Tatras Mountains, which are the highest mountain range in the Carpathian arc. The knowledge of their history is based on lichenometric dating, historical orthophotos and incomplete archival records. Nevertheless, complete ...

Abstract

The evolution of a debris-flow cone depends on a multitude of factors in the hydrogeomorphic system. Investigations of debris-flow history and cone dynamics in highly active catchments therefore require an integrative approach with a temporal and spatial resolution appropriate for the goals of the...

Abstract

High-mountain ecosystems, located at the geographical distribution limit of the species, may provide valuable information about tree-growth responses to changes in climate conditions and land uses. In order to provide a first description of a mountain pine ecotone, at the alpine treeline, three...

Abstract

The present study applies classic spectral analysis techniques to investigate cyclic patterns in four tree-ring chronologies of Pinus montana Miller from the Central Italian Alps (Valle del Gallo). Three of the chronologies were derived from mountain pine populations located in relatively...

Abstract

In this paper we analyze upright mountain pine (Pinus montana Miller) radial growth responses to climatic and environmental factors in a valley of the Central Italian Alps. This valley is characterized by intense geomorphological dynamics that can mostly be traced back to instability processes and...

Abstract

The debris flow is a mass movement frequent in the Italian Alps, causing the formation of alluvial fans. Some of the past centuries' episodes were dated by means of dendrochronology on a debris flow fan (Valle della Casina fan) in the Valle del Gallo (upper Valtellina-upper Valle dello Spöl,...

Abstract

Only two chronologies were developed for Pinus mugo. The first (century-old in length) focuses on the area of the Carpathian Mountains while the second (27-year-old) focuses on the area of the Dolomites. Mast years were not yet demonstrated for the species, at least on the whole of its range and to ...

Abstract

The pollen, extrafossil and macrofossil results from three bog localities Schwarzensteinmoor, Schwarzensteinalpe and Schwarzen-Steinboden permit detailed reconstruction of vegetation, climate, avalanche frequency and agro-pastoral activities for the last 10.000 years. The oldest peat sediments from ...
