Evidence for glaciation predating MIS-6 in the eastern Nyainqêntanglha, southeastern Tibet

Southeastern Tibet is one of the most glaciated region on the Tibetan Plateau both at present and during the Quaternary. Existing numerical ages of glacial deposits in this region suggest that the oldest glaciation (Guxiang Glaciation) occurred during marine oxygen isotope stage 6 (MIS-6). In this study evidence is presented for an earlier glaciation, Nitong Glaciation, which was dated using electron spin resonance to 506.3±60.4 ka.

Evidence for PeVatrons, the Milky Way's most powerful particle accelerators

The Tibet ASγ experiment, a China-Japan joint research project on cosmic-ray observation, has discovered ultra-high-energy diffuse gamma rays from the Milky Way galaxy. The highest energy detected is estimated to be unprecedentedly high, nearly 1 Peta electronvolts. These gamma rays are spread out across the Milky Way. Scientists believe they are produced by the nuclear interaction between cosmic rays escaping from the most powerful galactic sources ("PeVatrons") and interstellar gas in the Milk...

Printed in the 18th century, “the book is likely ...
