Abstract

The Karakoram glaciers with lengths of up to 60 km are accompanied by lateroglacial sediment complexes over tens of kilometers. Besides their large horizontal distribution, they are spread over a considerable vertical range and occur between 2500 m-5000 m. The investigation showed that : the secondary debris supply in form of reworking of older glacigenic deposits (Late glacial slope moraines) represents a major debris source; the lateroglacial sediments are composed to a major part of debris supplies from the tributary valleys. Topographical factors seem to be more important than insolation differences for the lateroglacial valley distribution pattern
