Glacier atlas of India / V.K. Raina, Deepak Srivastava.

Title: Glacier atlas of India / V.K. Raina, Deepak Srivastava.
Author(s): Raina, V. K.
Srivastava, Deepak.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: Bangalore: Gological Society of India
Abstract: Describes existing glacier cover in Indian part of Himalayas, providing base for glacier description and fluctuation measurement, and irrigation and power project planning. Documents number, size and shape of glaciers and explores glacier processes and their impact on terrain as glacier landforms. Sections cover: glacier origin, classification and surface features; photographs and short descriptions of glacier processes and peri- and pro-glacial landforms; surging glaciers; glacier inventory (identification, classification and coding of glaciated basins); historical and modern studies of glacier mass balance, flow, thickness and retreat and dating of ice; snow cover studies; snout photographs, surge records, satellite imagery of snow cover fluctuations and winter temperature analysis; bibliography.
