Record #172316:

Quaternary glaciation in the Nepal Himalaya / Monique Fort.

Title: Quaternary glaciation in the Nepal Himalaya / Monique Fort.
Author(s): Fort, Monique.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Amsterdam: Elsevier
In: Quaternary glaciations - extent and chronology : Part III South America, Asia, Australia, Antarctica. (2004.),
Abstract: Notes problems with difficulty and expense of access, limited mapping, etc, and describes problems of establishing chronology of ancient glacial stages, particularly due to high erosion rates and extensive mass-movement processes (debris flows, landslides, etc.). Presents schematic cross section through Greater Himalaya showing recent and Late Pleistocene glaciation, and state of knowledge in 14 massifs and valley systems, with photographs and maps illustrating geomorphological features. Concludes Last Glacial Maximum occurred during Marine Isotope Stage 3 rather than MIS 2. Complements digital maps included with volume.
