Record #195066:

Glaciers of China / Yafeng Shi, and 4 others.

Title: Glaciers of China / Yafeng Shi, and 4 others.
Author(s): Shi, Yafeng.
Date: 2010.
In: U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. (2010.), Vol. 1386-F-2 (2010)
Abstract: Describes and illustrates distribution of glaciers in 12 mountain regions of China and compares Landsat MSS imagery with earlier aerial photography, study results and maps to determine glacier change. Provides map of glacierized regions and snowline altitude in China and lists some commonly used transliterated Chinese terms for geographic features. Discusses ablation of glaciers and discharge of meltwater into glacierized drainage basins. Provides for each region selected place-names of glaciers and other geographic features and discusses advance/retreat, climate and mass balance of several glaciers.
