ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on climate on mountain ranges in Earth. It references the study "Glacial Cirques and the Relationship Between Equilibrium Line Altitudes and Mountain Range Height" by S. G. Mitchell and E. E. Humphries in the 2015 issue. Topics discussed include the cause of limited peaks within the quarternary average glacier equilibrium line altitude (QA-ELA), the reason for the presence of cirque glaciers in valley heads, and a description of glacial ridges.
