The problem of the identification of relict rock glaciers on sedimentological evidence The second approach is the genctic definition advocated by Haeberli (1985) and Barsch (1996), who both assume that a rock glacier is a landform which has resulted exclusively from creep in a permafrost environment. The accepting of either the former or the later causes far┬Ěreaching divergences in interpretations. Complications arise from the fact that creeping permafrost does not always produce a landform which shows the relief typical of a rock glacier, whereas, by contrast, processes not necessarily connected with permafrost can be expressed as forms morphologically similar to rock glacier
