Fig. 4: Hypothetical curves for different landsystems describing the state of paraglacial landscape adjustment at any time after deglaciation. The period of paraglacial activity varies over several orders of magnitude ranging from 10-100 years for the modification of glacier forefields to more than 10000 years for rock-slope failure. This study refers to paraglacial talus accumulation also operating over more than 10000 years after deglaciation (Ballantyne 2002).
