Abstract

In this study five terminal moraines have been separated in different catchment areas on the western side of the Verkhoyansk Mountains by the use of remote sensing data, geomorphological field mapping and sedimentological analysis. The new chronostratigraphy indicates a similar behaviour of glaciers in the Verkhoyansk Mountains and the eastern sector of the Eurasian ice-sheet in the Barents- and Kara-Sea as well as the mountains glaciations in Chukotka. However, one major difference is the missing global last glaciation in the study area. Incresing aridity during the later last glacial cycle is the supposed cause. - (IfL)
