Description :
This treatise is the regional continuation of a detailed and spatially extensive reconstruction of the Ice-Age glaciation in High-Asia. The field observations introduced here in part confirm the results as to the Ice Age glacier surface area of Lydekker, Oestreich and Dainelli, but go beyond it. In addition, a reconstruction of the surface level of this ice stream network and its glacier thicknesses up to the highest regions of the present-day Karakorum valley glaciers has been carried out for the first time and the results are presented and discussed here.
