Transcript

  • 1. New aspects on the late to post glacialdeglaciation around the Nilgiri Himal andthe southern Thakkola (Nepal Himalaya) Markus Wagner Northwest German Forest Research Station Goettingen Germany
  • 2. paleoclimate research in the Himalaya• rating of the present climate and modelling of future climate trends requires knowledge of climate and climate change in the past • extent and chronology of pleistocene glaciation • extent: glaciogeomorphology • chronology: relative: e.g. glaciogeomorphology, pedology • chronology: absolute: e.g. 14C, TL, OSL, TCN Markus Wagner 2

  • 23. soil profiles of the investigation areasMarkus Wagner 23
  • 24. pedological relative datingproof of the degree of soil development by:1. formation of pedogenic iron and aluminium oxi-hydroxides2. changing total element concentrations due to the element specific mobilisation and leaching affinity3. grain size distribution of fine earth Markus Wagner 24
  • 25. Exemplarily assortment of pedological weathering indices, Thini Kholawell chrystallised iron oxides: total iron ratio  Na  a Mg a K  a Ca  a  WI(P)    0,35  0,9  0,25  0,7  100   clay mass Markus Wagner 25
  • 26. Exemplarily assortment of pedological weathering indices, Dhampu Basin pedogenic iron oxides: total iron ratio Modfied Weathering Potential Index (Na2O+K2O+CaO+MgO)/(Na2O+K2O+ CaO+MgO+Al2O3+Fe2O3+SiO2)*100 clay massMarkus Wagner 26
  • 27. Exemplarily assortment of pedological weathering indices, Kali Gandaki south of the Higher Himalaya well chrystallised iron oxides: total iron ratio Clay Accumulation Index Markus Wagner 27
  • 28. Synoptical discussion of the results• The own geomorphological investigations confirm the more extended last high glacial glaciation found in the literature• ELA depressions of at least 1300 m can be reonstructed; this is in conformity with results from neighbouring regions• lower and highly variable maximum ELA depressions, which are explained by a weaker and shifting monsoon, can not be confirmed by geomorphological investigations• for pedological relative dating of moraines in the Himalaya similar conditions of soil formation, and sufficient precipitation amounts are required; in the central part of the Higher Himalaya around the Nilgiri- Himal this is on the south-face of the Higher Himalaya extreme topography and strong human influence prevent a for that necessary continous soil development Thank you very much for your attention !!!
