The fluvial system in proglacial areas is more or less continuously fed with sediment by glacial melt water and infrequently (e.g. during rainstorm events) supplied with sediment by landslides, debris flows, rock fall or fluvial transport from the coupled slopes. A part of the sediment input is temporary stored in intermitted sinks, such as the river bed, bars or braid plains. These stores can be reworked and then become sources for fluvial sediment transport mainly during floods. These sediment transporting processes are highly variable in both, the temporal and spatial scale. Following this high variability, knowledge of sediment fluxes and the interrelated geomorphological processes in proglacial areas, based on field-data is lacking. The presented work is part of the PROSA research project, which is founded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) and is set up in the Kaunertal valley, Austrian Alps. This project is focussed on the quantification of recent and subrecent fluvial sediment transport. Suspended sediment load and bed load are measured on different locations in the proglacial Fagge River below the Gepatschferner. Additionally the surface changes of important sediment sources (moraine, bars), which are directly connected to the river system, are quantified by a comparison of multitemporal terrestrial and airborne laserscanning data.
