We would like to invite submissions to our session entitled "EP012: Coevolution of Glaciation and Glaciated Mountains".
This session combines two proposed sessions: one more general in scope (Keith Ma & Stuart Thomson) and one focused specifically on the Tian Shan region (Nat Lifton & Yixin Chen). As such, our goal is to provide a broadly inclusive forum to discuss mountain glaciation and glaciated mountains, with some portion of the session focused on studies from the Tian Shan region.
Description: The form and dynamics of glaciation and of glaciated mountains are inextricably linked. Where climate and topography permit glaciers to grow, erosion or protection by warm- or cold-based glaciers can modify range-scale topography and crustal kinematics, reorganize drainage networks and reshape valleys; changes which in turn influence ice dynamics. We seek contributions that address the interplay between glacier dynamics, erosion, climate, and tectonics from a wide range of tectonic settings, glacial regimes, spatial and temporal scales, and methodologies (observational, modeling, experimental). We particularly invite workers in the Tian Shan range.
