Formal subdivision of the Holocene Series/Epoch: a Discussion Paper by a Working Group of INTIMATE (Integration of ice‐core, marine and terrestrial records) and the Subcommission on Quaternary
This discussion paper, by a Working Group of INTIMATE (Integration of ice-core, marine and terrestrial records) and the Subcommision on Quaternary Stratigraphy (SQS) of the International CommissionExpand
The δ18O record along the Greenland Ice Core Project deep ice core and the problem of possible Eemian climatic instability
Over 70,000 samples from the 3029-m-long Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) ice core drilled on the top of the Greenland Ice Sheet (Summit) have been analyzed for δ8O. A highly detailed and continuousExpand
Reconstructed changes in Arctic sea ice over the past 1,450 years
Arctic sea ice extent is now more than two million square kilometres less than it was in the late twentieth century, with important consequences for the climate, the ocean and traditional lifestylesExpand
Holocene climatic records from Agassiz Ice Cap, Ellesmere Island, NWT, Canada
Four ice cores from the top of the Agassiz Ice Cap and down a flow line have been variously analysed for 8 (18O), ECM (solid conductivity) and ice-melt layer stratigraphy. Stratigraphic correlationExpand
A record of Holocene summer climate from a Canadian high-Arctic ice core
MELT layers in ice cores are formed by melting on the snow-pack surface, which produces water that percolates down and refreezes in the colder snow layers below. Melt layers are distinguished byExpand
High Arctic Holocene temperature record from the Agassiz ice cap and Greenland ice sheet evolution
Significance Reconstructions of past environmental changes are important for placing recent climate change in context and testing climate models. Periods of past climates warmer than today provideExpand
H2O at the Phoenix Landing Site
Phoenix Ascending The Phoenix mission landed on Mars in March 2008 with the goal of studying the ice-rich soil of the planet's northern arctic region. Phoenix included a robotic arm, with a cameraExpand
Holocene climate change in Arctic Canada and Greenland.
Abstract This synthesis paper summarizes published proxy climate evidence showing the spatial and temporal pattern of climate change through the Holocene in Arctic Canada and Greenland. Our synthesisExpand
Formal Subdivision of the Holocene Series/Epoch
This proposal, by a Working Group of Integration of ice-core, marine, and terrestrial records (INTIMATE) and the Subcommission on Quaternary Stratigraphy (SQS) of the International Commission onExpand
Eemian interglacial reconstructed from a Greenland folded ice core
Efforts to extract a Greenland ice core with a complete record of the Eemian interglacial (130,000 to 115,000 years ago) have until now been unsuccessful. The response of the Greenland ice sheet toExpand
