Record #125505:

Active rockglaciers and the lower limit of discontinuous alpine permafrost in the Khumbu Himalaya, Nepal / Dietrich Barsch, Matthias Jakob.

Title: Active rockglaciers and the lower limit of discontinuous alpine permafrost in the Khumbu Himalaya, Nepal / Dietrich Barsch, Matthias Jakob.
Author(s): Barsch, Dietrich.
Jakob, Matthias.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Wushan, Guangzhou: South China University of Technology Press
In: Permafrost. Sixth International Conference. Proceedings (Vol. 1), July 5-9, 1993, Beijing China. (1993.),
Abstract: Seismic studies carried out between February and May 1991 in order to determine depth of active layer of four rock glaciers and of adjacent ground in order to determine lower limit of discontinuous active permafrost. Relative dating employed to differentiate morphological units and to determine possible correlation with climatic changes. Vertical mass transport by rockfall was compared with that in Swiss Alps.
