The Last Glacial Maximum
The Melting Is in the Details Global sea level rises and falls as ice sheets and glaciers melt and grow, providing an integrated picture of the changes in ice volume but little information about howExpand

An outline of North American deglaciation with emphasis on central and northern Canada
Publisher Summary This chapter reviews that the Late Wisconsinan North American ice sheet complex consisted of three major ice sheets: (1) the Laurentide Ice Sheet, which was centred on the CanadianExpand

Late Wisconsinan and Holocene History of the Laurentide Ice Sheet
Eleven paleogeographic maps and a summary ice retreat map outline the history of advance, retreat, and readvances of the Laurentide Ice Sheet along with associated changes in proglacial drainage andExpand

Paleohydraulics of the last outburst flood from glacial Lake Agassiz and the 8200 BP cold event
Abstract During the last deglaciation of North America, huge proglacial lakes formed along the southern margin of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The largest of these was glacial Lake Agassiz, which formedExpand

Holocene thermal maximum in the western Arctic (0-180°W)
The spatio-temporal pattern of peak Holocene warmth (Holocene thermal maximum, HTM) is traced over 140 sites across the Western Hemisphere of the Arctic (0–180°W; north of ∼60°N). PaleoclimateExpand

History of sea ice in the Arctic
Abstract Arctic sea-ice extent and volume are declining rapidly. Several studies project that the Arctic Ocean may become seasonally ice-free by the year 2040 or even earlier. Putting this intoExpand

Marine Molluscs as Indicators of Environmental Change in Glaciated North America and Greenland During the Last 18 000 Years
Dated mollusc collections are classified in assemblages to map paleo-faunistic zones. Hiatella arctica and Mya truncata account for almost half the records and comprise a restricted arcticExpand

The Laurentide and Innuitian ice sheets during the Last Glacial Maximum
The Late Wisconsinan advance of the Laurentide Ice Sheet started from a Middle Wisconsinan interstadial minimum 27–30 14 C ka BP when the ice margin approximately followed the boundary of theExpand
