During the summer of 2008, I participated in an expedition funded by the Keck Geology Consortium to study active tectonics and Pleistocene glaciation in the Mongolian Altai (southwestern Mongolia). The primary scientific goals of this project were to discover the timing and displacement of large, recently active faults bounding the Höh Serh Range (a sub range of the Altai), correlate movement along these faults with the northward propagation of deformation related to the India-Asia collision, and reconstruct the glacial history of the Höh Serh Range. My contribution to this project was a detailed map of Pleistocene ice cover, flow patterns, and volume within a valley cutting through the southern portion of the range. This information combined with similar work by other expedition members enabled calculation of the change in annual temperature since the Last Glacial Maximum (5.3°C). This was the first study of the glacial history of the Höh Serh Range and adds to a growing body of knowledge about Pleistocene glacial conditions in central Asia. This work was presented in my undergraduate thesis and at several conferences. Active tectonics results can be found here.
