HPCCprojects:Glacier reconstruction in the Himalayas
Glacier reconstruction in the Himalayas
The project is about the evolution of an orogeny and the possible impacts from climate and tectonics. The study area lies in the humid frontal segments of the Himalaya, where the present-day ice coverage is high but the evidence for extensive glaciations is limited. We want distinguish between fluvial and glacial erosion in the northwestern Himalayas and in this context if glaciers impede or accelerate erosion.
Understand the regional erosional pattern within the valley and possibly to determine whether glaciers influenced by local conditions (climate, tectonics), impede or accelerate erosion.
