published at : Tibet and High Asia (V)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



On the basis of empirical findings and inductive conclusions, the least extent of glaciation during the last ice age can be shown for 2 areas on the southern slopes of the Himalayas in Nepal. For the Rolwaling Himal, the snow line during the last ice age is calculated at 4000 m asl., i.e., 1500 m below the recent snow line. The last high-glacial snow line in the Kangchenjunga Himal is thought to be at 4350 m asl., the snow line depression here is 1150 m
