I'm currently studying cold environments, looking at periglacial processes.
I've been looking into gelifluction and solifluction as processes of periglaciation. The two terms seem to be used, mostly, without differentiation.
However, I am given to understand that there is a difference between the two processes. Apparently gelifluction is more distinct to periglaciation than solifluction.
Could anyone explain the difference between the two processes, if at all there is a difference?
