SS21 #6 Dongfeng Li et al. (2021) Exceptional increases in fluvial sediment fluxes in a warmer and wetter High Mountain Asia

Salutation: This study demonstrates impacts of modern climate change on sediment fluxes from high-mountain source areas, as warming and deglaciation generally increase sediment transport and change some of the source areas. It’s important work for understanding physical climate-change impacts on landscapes; their work is some of the clearest in a field where it’s often difficult to separate (and attribute) signal relative to noise.

Why was it awesome? It’s a scientific frontier!
