Description :
Results of field investigations at the northern foot of East Kunlun Mts. as well as the known so far literature data allowed a reconstruction to be made of the history and type of glaciation and deglaciation of this area during the Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene. Kame terraces are interstratified and covered with angular debris of supraglacial derivation, protecting them against post-depositional erosion and denudation. The thermoluminescence dating of kame sediments yielded a date which suggests that local deglaciation of the investigated foot of the East Kunlun Mts took place early in the Holocene, around 8 000 years BP.
