Abstract

The drainage of the Kyagar glacier dammed lake and the Tram Kangri glacier dammed lake at the upper Shaksgam is the mean reason for glacier outburst floods in the Yarkant river. These floods are characterized by high peak discharge, big rising rate, small total volume and short duration. The floods happen mostly from late summer to early autumn. Frequent glacier outburst floods indicate glacier advance and climatic variations
