ESPM Pseudo-weekly GoogleEarth Placemark no. 1 - Nanga Parbat


The first of what will hopefully be a series of GoogleEarth(TM) placemarks to illustrate geomorphologically-interesting places around the world, this week download the kmz file to look at Nanga Parbat in the western syntaxis in the Himalayas. The mighty Indus River flows in the foreground, one of the most rapidly-incising rivers on the planet, while the giant peak of Nanga Parbat stands in the distance, it's height of 8126m attributable in large part to the 3500m headwall above the Diamir Glacier, immediately in front of the peak in this view.
