Qianhu Mountain has distinctive glacial landforms and deposits, including cirques, peaks, arêtes, lateral moraines and terminal moraines above 3500 m a.s.l., and these morphologic features suggest a clear sequence of landscape-forming events during one or more glacial cycles. Based on these glacial landforms and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) ages, the AA. examine the timing and extent of glacial advances during the last glacial cycle and discuss environmental factors, including climate and tectonic uplift, which influence glaciation in this region. The results suggest that climatic and tectonic factors both play a part in controlling the number and extent of glaciations in western China
