Abstract/ Summary

Analysis of reactive silicate, ammonium, phosphate, iron and sodium from cores taken from three glaciers in the Kashmir portion of the Himalayas are reported as the first in a series of glacio-chemical studies designed to produce proxy paleoclimatic data for this region. This study stresses the elevation dependency of such studies and for the chemical species analyzed which are most reliable for the purpose of the study.
