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 the

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 temperate

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 were

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 other

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 with

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 and



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 low

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 as

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 the

Zonation in the Accumulation Area of the Glaciers of Axel Heiberg Island, N.W.T., Canada

Abstract Mass budget studies on the glaciers of Axel Heiberg Island, Canadian Arctic Archipelago, during the summers of 1959–61, resulted in recognition of five distinct zones in the accumulation
