Abstract

Four models of Quaternary glaciation are described with reference to evidence on both sides of the Himalaya. On the north side, the most extensive glaciation occurred during the Nieniexongla stage of the middle Pleistocene but, on the south side, the largest glacial cover occurred during the early part of the Upper Pleistocene. A major ice sheet covering the whole of the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau can be ruled out on the basis of geological evidence and climatological theory, although many medium-sized ice caps developed on the ranges which rise above the Plateau
