Abstract
The late Quaternary glacial history of the Nun-Kun massif, located on the boundary between the Greater Himalaya and the Zanskar range in northwestern India, was reconstructed. On the basis of morphostratigraphy and 10Be dating of glacial landforms (moraines and glacial trimlines), five glacial stages were recognized and defined, namely: (i) the Achambur glacial stage dated to Marine Oxygen Isotope Stage 3 to 4 (38.7? 62.7 ka) (ii) the Tongul glacial stage dated to the early part of the Lateglacial (16.7? 17.4 ka) (iii) the Amantick glacial stage dated to the later part of the Lateglacial (14.3 ka, 11.7? 12.4 ka) (iv) the Lomp glacial stage dated to the Little Ice Age and (v) the Tanak glacial stage, which has the youngest moraines, probably dating to the last few decades or so.ndforms (moraines and glacial trimlines), five glacial stages were recognized and defined, namely: (i) the Achambur glacial stage dated to Marine Oxygen Isotope Stage 3 to 4 (38.7? 62.7 ka) (ii) the Tongul glacial stage dated to the early part of the Lateglacial (16.7? 17.4 ka) (iii) the Amantick glacial stage dated to the later part of the Lateglacial (14.3 ka, 11.7? 12.4 ka) (iv) the Lomp glacial stage dated to the Little Ice Age and (v) the Tanak glacial stage, which has the youngest moraines, probably dating to the last few decades or so.
