Record #126790:

Present and past patterns of glaciation in the northwest Himalaya: climatic, tectonic and topographic controls / Jonathan A. Holmes.

Title: Present and past patterns of glaciation in the northwest Himalaya: climatic, tectonic and topographic controls / Jonathan A. Holmes.
Author(s): Holmes, Jonathan A.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: London: Routledge
Abstract: Reports new information on past and present distribution of glaciers in Kashmir, and compares with previous work from elsewhere in north-west Himalaya. Patterns of modern glacierization indicate strong influence of precipitation; hence, modern equilibrium-line altitude gradients reflect precipitation gradients.
