Erosion of the Himalayas governed by tectonic movements, limiting climate change impacts on landscape formation

Researchers from Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques (CNRS / University of Lorraine), in collaboration with CEREGE have shown that erosion in the Himalayas is primarily governed by tectonic movements, which would limit the impact of climate change on the formation of Himalayan landscapes. Their study was published in Nature Geosciences on June 1, 2020.
