Klima und Landschaft des Hochgebirges in den sommertrockenen Subtropen am Beispiele des Afganischen Hindukusch. (Climate and landscape of the high mountains in the summer-dry subtropical regions on the example of the Afghan Hindu Kush)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The meteorological observations from the Salang pass in the Western Hindu Kush of Afghanistan allow a more detailled understanding of climate and landscape of this high mountain region. They demonstrate a type of high mountains in a summer-dry subtropical climate where all vertical limits are lying very high, differences of exposure are playing a great role and especially the zone of solifluction is developed in a large vertical space and with characteristic conditions.
