ABSTRACT
The article cites a study from Summer Rupper of Brigham Young University related to the glaciers' response to climatic changes. The study discovered that 9,000 years ago glaciers in the Southeast Himalayas did the opposite of the usual logic that glaciers retreat under higher temperatures. It was discovered that with warm climate, the shifting weather in Central Asia also brought clouds creating cooler temperature. The research appeared in a September issue of "Quaternary Research."
