    • ...In Part 2 [Gischig et al., 2011b], we then focus on a case study of the Randa rock slope instability, where up to nine years of monitoring data from both the surface and boreholes suggest that thermal effects control ongoing displacements...
    • ...A detailed description of the instability, including geological setting, failure kinematics, deformation monitoring, etc., is presented by Gischig et al. [2011b]...
    • ...[9] As described in Part 2 of this work [Gischig et al., 2011b], quasi‐continuous deformation monitoring both on the surface of and within the toppling rock mass revealed a relatively consistent seasonal deformation trend characterized by higher displacement rates in winter and slower rates in summer...
    • ...We hypothesize that this temporal behavior is controlled by thermal effects, which we explore both with conceptual models here and Randa‐specific models presented by Gischig et al. [2011b]...
