    The Periglacial Environment, Third Edition, provides an authoritative overview of the world’s cold, non-glacial environments. Emphasis is placed upon the North American and Eurasian polar lowlands, but examples are also drawn from Antarctica, the Qinghai-Xizang (Tibet) Plateau, and the northern mid-latitudes.

    Annual firn accumulation on the Rongbuk Glacier, which drains the north slope of Mt. Qomolangma, is to mm of water equivalent. In , mm of glacier ice was melted. The ice melt contribution to the river discharge will be higher in dry years and lower, but compensated for by snow melt, in wet years. Using areas of clean ice measured from Landsat Author: R. M. Krimmel. Finally, the extensive periglacial region of the Qinghai-Xizang (Tibet) Plateau has so far not been adequately described in the western literature, yet it is the same size as the North American or Eurasian periglacial regions. Thus, I have attempted to incorporate, wherever appropriate, data from this unusual environment.

The Tibetan (Qinghai-Xizang) Plateau, known as the “roof of the world”, is sparsely populated, with an average population density of people/km 2 in [10,11].It is a sensitive region to climate change [12,13], and has been regarded as an ideal place to study the impact of climate change on environment [14,15,16,17].Since , “the Western Regions Development Cited by:
