Abstract

Investigations on the relationships and interactions between glaciers and permafrost in high-mountain regions have long been neglected. As a consequence, numerous fascinating questions remain open and offer possibilities for highly relevant, innovative and integrative research concerning materials, processes, landforms, environmental aspects and natural hazards. The historical background to this situation is first reviewed, examples are given of some key unanswered questions and two case studies are presented to illustrate the importance of considering the combined effects of glaciers and permafrost, particularly in the context of hazard assessments in high mountains.
