Nanga Parbat Continental Dynamics Project
Some Images and Data...

To keep the scientific community and the broader public informed about our project, we will be happy to make summaries of our data and results available for inspection. Please note that what you see are likely to intermediate results; you should contact the specific investigator for more information about the particulars of any given data set, figure, or image.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The data, image, and plots found here are in most cases the intellectual property of the P.I.'s. If you wish to download or use any of the information you find here, please obtain permission first. Don't spoil this experiment in open access!

For the moment (2-4-98), what you will find below are some of the data and observations which led us to propose our project. Within a few months, as publications are submitted and reach the press, we will begin to post new project data. We are currently constructing an integrated database containing as many of our data as possible; details will be announced here.
