  author={William M. Phillips and Valerie Sloan and John F. Shroder and Pankaj Sharma},
We present a new glacial chronology demonstrating asynchroneity between advances of Himalayan glaciers and Northern Hemisphere icesheet volumes. Glaciers at Nanga Parbat expanded during the early to middle Holocene ca. 9.0–5.5 ka. No major advances at Nanga Parbat during the last global glacial stage of marine oxygen isotope stage 2 (MIS-2) between 24 and 11 ka were identified. Preliminary evidence also indicates advances between ca. 60 and 30 ka. These periods of high ice volume coincide with… CONTINUE READING
