Geodynamic Evolution Of The Hangay Dome, Mongolia Central Asia
High-elevation, low relief surfaces are common on continents. These intercontinental plateaus influence river networks, climate, and the migration of plants and animals. How these plateaus form is not clear. We are studying the geodynamic processes responsible for surface uplift in the Hangay in central Mongolia to better understand the origin of high topography in continental interiors.
2013 Field School in Mongolia - Student Opportunity
As part of our project we will be running a field school in Mongolia in summer 2013. This will involve short courses held in Ulaan Baatar followed by field work in the Hangay Mountains with our project scientists. For more information contact Karl Wegmann or Anne Meltzer.
