A gorge along the
The researchers have used a new technique called Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) Thermochronometry. This disagrees with a belief that the surface erosion due to the dominant river and other factors would attach the high erosion zone to its location.
The topography of mountain ranges comes to be as a result of diverse factors such as tectonics, climate and surface processes. In this circumstance, the study contributes to a debate about the importance of surface processes such as river erosion and other activities to tectonics.
The tall mountains of
By observing the history of concentrations of electrons, the scientists estimates that the temperature shape against the time and then transform this into knowledge of the depth as a function of time. This helps the researchers to comprehend the rate at which the rock rose to the surface.
The measurements were made by the researchers at five regions along the
