Nanga Parbat Continental Dynamics Project

This project was active from about 1994 to 2000. This page will provide access to and summarize our results, but at the moment we're behind on this task. In the meantime, we've posted a few links that you might find useful.

Work on this project has been completed, and we've accrued a raft of data, archived samples, and publications. Ultimately our goal is to organize some of this material and make it available for educational purposes and for those interested in the mountains of Asia. However, it will take us some time to get all this collated and posted.

For the moment, have a look at some of the links in the sidebar. Many of our formal publications are listed in the 'Publications' section of the main site, and you can find some additional Nanga Parbat photos in the project image galleries. Our ideas about feedbacks betweem erosion, crustal temperatures, and crustal strength originated in the Nanga Parbat project, and are discussed in the "Scientific Background" part of the main site.

Finally, you might be interested in looking out for the documentary about this project that was made by Doug Prose and Diane LaMacchia of Earth Images Foundation: "Nanga Parbat (Naked Mountain)." It's a little pricey for individuals to buy, but has been shown on public television stations throughout the world.
