Rather, in some areas glaciers reached their maxima at the global glacial maximum of c. 18–20 ka bp, whereas in others glaciers were most extensive at c. 60–30 ka bp. Comparison of these data with palaeoclimatic records from adjacent regions suggest that, on millennial timescales, Himalayan glacier fluctuations are controlled by variations… CONTINUE READING
