Periglacial Environments II: General

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Polar Geography Specialty Group, Cryosphere Specialty Group, Geomorphology Specialty Group
Organizers: Kelsey Nyland, Raven Mitchell
Chairs: Kelsey Nyland


This multidisciplinary session will feature periglacial (cold, but unglaciated) regions. Such high-latitude or altitude landscapes warrant attention due to the sensitivity to both paleoclimate and modern climate change impacting both natural processes, flora, fauna, and remote communities. We invite papers focusing on periglacial environments including those relating studies on geomorphology, environmental monitoring, history, socio-economic impacts, and education.If you are interested in participating, please send your abstract and PIN to Kelsey Nyland ( or Raven Mitchell ( by October 30th.
