With the analysis of stable water isotope ration we are investigating hydrological fluxes in NW India. In particular we detect the relative effect of precipitation and snow/glacial melt on surface runoff. We investigate, if the biomarker and stable isotopic composition of soils is characteristic for altitude and climatic conditions in the Sutlej valley in NW India and evaluate it’s potential as a proxy for past climates and tectonic uplift. This project is part of the EU funded Innovative Training Network iTECC.
