Site Description
Network of cold scree slope observation. Cold scree slopes are debris slopes which lower part is overcooled by seasonally alternating air circulations. "Abyssal" ecosystems develop on the cooled part, with dwarf trees, arctic-alpine plant, moss and lichen associations, on moor type humus. These sites show a unique combination of geomorphologically induced microclimate, vegetation, soil and soil microfauna. The network of monitoring sites is distributed over the French Alps and Jura mountains.

Purpose
The scope of the cold scree slope monitoring network is a better understanding of the functionning and interactions between the microclimate, soil climate, soil caracteristics, bryophites and vascular vegetation, as well as the sensitivity of these systems to climate change.
History
The network was constituted in 2012 and progressively extended. Six sites are monitored since 2014.
