Origin of a bouldery diamicton, Kunlun pass, Qinghai-Xizang plateau, People's Republic of China : gelifluction deposit or rock glacier?
On the west side of the military road to Tibet in the Kunlun Shan, a major body of diamicton is moving slowly downslope from the ridge crest at 4800m in a northerly and easterly direction. This paper describes the nature of the diamicton, re-evaluating its origin, and interpreting the diamicton as a gelifluction deposit based on visits in 5 of 6 years between 1990 and 1996
