Periglacial processes are fundamentally important to understanding of the geomorphology of contemporary polar and alpine regions, and of the stratigraphy and palaeoenviroments of past cold environments. This session seeks to integrate recent advances in field monitoring, laboratory modelling, theoretical developments and palaeoenvironmental studies of periglacial processes, landforms, sediments and environments. Contributions are welcome from geomorphologists, geologists and climate scientists or others with interests in all types of periglacial phenomena. The session is co-sponsored by the Working Group on Periglacial Landforms, Processes and Climate of the International Permafrost Association.
