Himalayan fir reveals moist phase during Little Ice Age in the Kashmir region of the western Himalayas.
MSc Bency David Chinthala (Institut für Geographie, FAU)
Moderation: Prof. Dr. Achim Bräuning
Himalayan hydroclimate is under the complex interaction between the South Asian Summer Monsoon (SASM) and the winter Westerly Disturbances (WDs). The interrelationship between SASM and WDs critically influences the regional hydrology and vegetation growth. The understanding on the interplay between two circulation systems and their impact on vegetation growth dynamics is important for managing the future sustainability of Himalayan biodiversity. The talk will highlight a climate study from the SASM and WD dominated regions of the Indian Western Himalayas, focusing on a drought variability reconstruction of the last four centuries, comparing the moisture variability during the globally known Little Ice Age (LIA) climatic phase with contrasting features during the Post-LIA period.
Wann: Mittwoch, 15.11.2023 von 12:30 bis 14:00 Uhr
