The area around Monte Beigua is characterized by accumulations of large blocks. Survey indicates the occurrence of flow structures on the surfaces of the blockfields, and a pattern of long axis orientation aligned in the same direction as the local gradient. Blocks are often imbricated upslope at the front. The formation of block streams is tentatively attributed to cold-climate conditions during the Pleistocene.

Abstract

The area around Monte Beigua is characterized by accumulations of large blocks. Survey indicates the occurrence of flow structures on the surfaces of the blockfields, and a pattern of long axis orientation aligned in the same direction as the local gradient. Blocks are often imbricated upslope at the front. The formation of block streams is tentatively attributed to cold-climate conditions during the Pleistocene.
