The article reports on a study which determines the presence of Pindari glacier in Babaji, India. It explores the method of the study, which uses geomorphic approach aided with optically stimulated luminescence and 14C dates top understand the dynamics of the Pindari glacier in time and space. It recognizes the benefits of using lichenometry in determining the growth of the Pindari glacier, however, it suggests to thoroughly understand the dating of the rock.

    Water plays a first-order role in basal sliding of glaciers and ice sheets and is often a key constituent of accelerated glacier motion. Subglacial water is known to occupy systems of cavities and conduits at the interface between ice and the underlying bed surface, depending upon the history of...
