Relative dating of Quaternary moraines, Rongbuk valley, Mount Everest, Tibet: Implications for an ice sheet on the Tibetan Plateau
Abstract Relative-dating studies applied to high-altitude moraines (5000–5500 m) in the Rongbuk valley on the northern flank of Mt. Everest reveal strong contrasts in the weathering characteristicsExpand
Review on dating methods: Numerical dating in the quaternary geology of High Asia
Over the past few years, OSL and TCN datings of glacial material from High Asia have come into fashion. To this day, however, these techniques do not permit safe calibration. The intensity of theExpand
The maximum ice age glaciation between the karakorum main ridge (K2) and the tarim basin and its influence on global energy balance
A modern research approach and working techniques in hitherto unexamined areas, produced the following results: 1). The tongues of decakilometre long Karakorum glaciers belong to temperateExpand
The Overall Picture of the Maximal Ice Expansion in High Asia During the Last Ice Age
The primary context for this section is provided by Figs. 2.1 and 4.1. In this book, the most arid (i.e., low-precipitation) areas as well as the most centrally located areas of Central Tibet wereExpand
The Paleoclimatic Significance of the Ice Age Glaciation of High Asia
The Tibetan inland ice cover had a minimum extent of 2.4 million km2. The glacier covers of the entirety of High Asia were, as shown by Fig. 5.1, even slightly larger. Unlike all the otherExpand
Equilibrium-line altitudes of Late Quaternary glaciers in the Oshtorankuh Mountain, Iran
Valleys in the north flank of Oshtorankuh (central Zagros Mountain Range, IRAN) are presently ice-free except few relict firn basins but they were glaciated during the Late Quaternary. TheExpand
The glacial (MIS 3-2) outlet glacier of the Marsyandi Nadi-icestream-network with its Ngadi Khola tributary glacier (Manaslu- and Lamjung Himalaya): The reconstructed lowering of the Marsyandi Nadi ice stream tongue down in to the southern Himalaya Foreland

For the reconstruction of past climate variations, investigations on the history of glaciers are necessary. In the Himalaya, investigations like these have a rather short tradition in comparison withExpand
Trend analysis of the Younger Dryas event record
As the latest abrupt cold event, the study on the Younger Dryas event is important to forecast the change of future climate, especially to present global warming. So that what caused the event andExpand


The upper limit of glaciation in the Himalayas
On the slopes of Himalayan Mountains there is a reduction and culmination of glaciation at 7000–7200 m asl. The presumed cause for this is that the surface temperatures on these slopes are too lowExpand
Glacial and Quaternary geology
The North America landscape north of about 40°N was extensively glaciated during the last Ice Age, which ended about 14,000 years ago. Thus, much of the landscapes that we see around us was createdExpand
Quaternary Glacial Record in Swat Kohistan, West Pakistan
During three Pleistocene glaciations, large valley glaciers originating at altitudes of 12,000 ft or more occupied the northern part of the Swat River drainage basin and terminated at altitudes asExpand

Stratigraphic studies in the snow and firn of the Greenland ice sheet
Abstract : The Greenland ice sheet is treated as a monomineralic rock formation, primarily metamorphic, but with a sedimentary veneer of snow and firn. The sedimentary part is perennial above theExpand
