To some extent, even the distribution of terrestrial and aquatic biocenoses reflects the history of glacial movements. This chapter aims to highlight the glacial dynamics in the Roseg catchment and to link these environmental forces to the evolution of the Roseg flood plain. Because environmental dynamics are always scale-dependant, different scales of observation have been chosen to reveal different aspects of glacio-fluvial dynamics. On a longterm scale, this chapter outlines the glacial dynamics of Val Roseg since the last ice age, when the present flood plain was formed and developed.

Snow pack Depth integrated snow samples collected at the end of the accumulation period (March, April) are enriched in Ca2+, HC0 3- and most nitrogen species (Table 1). , 1997). , 1999). However, the source of the elevated N0 3concentrations in surface water is not yet clear as it may either come from the snowpack or from catchment soils (see Chapter 6). Snow meltwater from nonglaciated areas of the catchment enters the flood plain at multiple locations mainly via subsurface flow paths. There is little overland flow in the Val Roseg catchment because the valley slopes are covered by thick permeable morainic and glaciofluvial deposits.
