Abstract

Solifluction movement rates from 1952 to 2008 for the Abisko region, N Sweden, have been compiled and analysed through correlation tests and multiple regression. It is concluded that movement rates may increase with high mean annual air temperature in the western part of the region, the spatial variability of movement rates within the region is very high and that altitude (and/or permafrost) together with wetness index are the main controls on the regional spatial variation. The study highlights the limitations in establishing statistical relationships between movement rates and climate using data from different field empirical studies
