Abstract

Since the late 1950's, many Chinese scientists have explored the remains of Quaternary glaciation in the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau and its surrounding mountains. In the main, 3-4 glaciations have been recognized. But there is no evidence of a unified ice sheet covering the whole plateau as described by M. Kuhle. For most Chinese scientists, this hypothesis is not acceptable. This paper gives a brief outline of the ideas of some Chinese scientistes in contrast to that of M. Kuhle
