Abstract:

To journey up the Tasman Valley from the Mackenzie Basin to Mt Cook Village is to travel through the past 100 000 years of time - from rocky moraines and gravel outwash plains that mark the limits of the great glaciers of the Ice Ages, to the rubble of yesterday's flood. Here today a relentless battle continues between mountain uplift and erosion by water and ice. This brochure describes the landscape of the Mt Cook region. (auths)
