Recent field research and modeling experiments by the authors suggest that Würm glaciation of Tian Shan Mountains had much larger extent than it was previously believed. Our reconstruction is based upon the following evidence: 1. a till blanket with buried glacier ice occurring on mountain plateaus at altitudes of 3700 to 4000 m asl; 2. trough valleys with U-shaped profiles breaching the border ridges and thus attesting to former outlet glaciers spreading outwards from the plateaus; 3… Expand
Constraints on the late Quaternary glacial history of the Inylchek and Sary-Dzaz valleys from in situ cosmogenic 10Be and 26Al, eastern Kyrgyz Tian Shan
Abstract Paleoclimatic constraints from regions at the confluence of major climate systems are particularly important in understanding past climate change. Using geomorphic mapping based on remoteExpand

Reconstruction of the 2.4 million km2 late Pleistocene ice sheet on the Tibetan Plateau and its impact on the global climate
During 20 expeditions new data were obtained on the maximum extent of glaciation in Tibet and the surrounding mountains. Evidence was found of moraines at altitudes as low as 460 m on the southernExpand

Timing and dynamics of glaciation in the Ikh Turgen Mountains, Altai region, High Asia
Abstract Spanning the northern sector of High Asia, the Altai region contains a rich landform record of glaciation. We report the extent, chronologies, and dynamics of two paleoglaciers on oppositeExpand
An extended history of high-amplitude lake-level changes in tectonically active Lake Issyk-Kul (Kyrgyzstan), as revealed by high-resolution seismic reflection data
A total of 84 seismic profiles mainly from the western and eastern deltas of Lake Issyk-Kul were used to identify lake-level changes. Seven stratigraphic sequences were identified each containing aExpand
The disappearance of glaciers in the Tien Shan Mountains in Central Asia at the end of Pleistocene
Glaciers in Central Asia are among the largest ice masses in the Eurasian continent and have supplied vital water to local inhabitants for thousands of years. The glaciers in this region areExpand
