Record #112109:

Quaternary glaciation of Tibet: the geological evidence / Edward Derbyshire, Yafeng Shi, Jujun Li, Benxing Zheng, Shijie Li, Jingtai Wang.

Title: Quaternary glaciation of Tibet: the geological evidence / Edward Derbyshire, Yafeng Shi, Jujun Li, Benxing Zheng, Shijie Li, Jingtai Wang.
Author(s): Derbyshire, Edward.
Shi, Yafeng.
Li, Jujun.
Zheng, Benxing.
Li, Shijie.
Wang, Jingtai.
Date: 1991.
In: Quaternary Science Reviews. (1991.), Vol. 10(6) (1991)
Abstract: Purpose of article is to review some key evidence from Qinghai-Xizang Plateau, where number and extent of Pleistocene glaciations remains contentious. Value of evidence as indicator of former ice extents and altitudinal variations in regional equilibrium lines, particularly for last glacial maximum, is assessed. Work of Chinese scientists since late 1950s is reviewed and principal findings used to reconstruct ice margins and palaeo-snowlines. Three, and sometimes four, glaciations have been recognized, most extensively in late Middle Pleistocene.
