THE GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY OF THE HIMALAYA Lieut.- Colonel Kenneth Mason The publication of Burrard's and Hayden's standard summary in came at a time when there was a danger that geographers might lose their way in a maze of unclassified detail. It marked a most important stage in the geographical study of the Himalaya.

      Himalayan groundwater Rivers draining the Himalaya provide vital resources for almost half of the world’s population. A combined model–data analysis suggests that the contribution of groundwater to the annual water budget in the central Himalaya may be substantial. The geological history of Spiti Valley dates back million years with a remarkable plethora of Precambrian/Cambrian era fossils and a recent study by the Geological Society of America shows that Spiti contains various marine fossils. These Paleozoic Era fossils represent some of the earliest legged creatures, relatives of crabs and spiders.. It’s then not without reason that Spiti has Author: Ankit Karki.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Mamgain, V.D. Upper Cretaceous microfauna of the Spiti and Niti areas of the Himalaya. Delhi: Controller of Publications, Civil Lines, An attempt has been made to produce the geological map of Ladakh, Lahaul and Spiti regions of Himalaya on the basis of the field work done by the authors and the observations made by earlier workers.

The stratigraphy of this region has been discussed in the light of new fossil finds from different stratigraphical by: Recently, several Early Cretaceous ammonoid taxa have been reported from different stratigraphic levels of the Giumal Formation exposed in the Chichim and Gete localities of the Spiti Himalaya.

The m-thick marine strata of the Tethys Himalaya of the Zhepure Mountain (Tingri, Tibet) comprise the Upper Albian to Eocene and represent the sedimentary development of the passive northern continental margin of the Indian plate.

Investigations of foraminifera have led to a detailed biozonation which is compared with the west Tethyan by: An updated introduction to the Spiti geology Article (PDF Available) in Journal of the Palaeontological Society of India 53(2) January with 6, Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Upper Cretaceous deposits are covered almost everywhere by Cenozoic deposits. Upper Cretaceous natural outcrops are found in the Ust’-Yenisei and Khatanga regions, on the eastern slope of the Ural Mountains, and in the Polar Fore-Urals.

"Upper Cretaceous deposits at Ukhaa Tolgod and adjacent localities in the Mongolian Gobi Desert have yielded a large number of superbly preserved lizard specimens, including representatives of several new taxa (described in this paper) and important supplementary material.

The Himalaya is a treasure trove of flowers many of which grow all over the northern temperate zone too. Some of them are unique to the Himalayas while others are very alpine in character.

The lower hills have a mixture of temperate and subtropical flora. Young, G.J. and K. Hewitt () Hydrology research in the upper Indus basin, Karakoram Himalaya, Pakistan. International Association Hydrological Sciences.

International Association of. The geology of the Himalaya is a record of the most dramatic and visible creations of modern plate tectonic forces. The Himalayas, which stretch over km between the Namche Barwa syntaxis in Tibet and the Nanga Parbat syntaxis in Pakistan, are the result of an ongoing orogeny — the result of a collision of the continental crust of two tectonic plates.

These soils occur in high altitude areas near snowline areas. The parent rock over which it develops varies from quartzite to granite, schist and gneissic rocks. The depth of the soil ranges from a few centimeters to a meter. However, sesquioxides or iron oxides usually found in podzols are generally absent in the podzolic soils of the Himalayas.
