Forcing of the cold event of 8,200 years ago by catastrophic drainage of Laurentide lakes
The sensitivity of oceanic thermohaline circulation to freshwater perturbations is a critical issue for understanding abrupt climate change. Abrupt climate fluctuations that occurred during both
Evidence for massive discharges of icebergs into the North Atlantic ocean during the last glacial period
SEDIMENTS in the North Atlantic ocean contain a series of layers that are rich in ice-rafted debris and unusually poor in foraminifera1. Here we present evidence that the most recent six of these
Formal definition and dating of the GSSP (Global Stratotype Section and Point) for the base of the Holocene using the Greenland NGRIP ice core, and selected auxiliary records
The Greenland ice core from NorthGRIP (NGRIP) contains a proxy climate record across the Pleistocene–Holocene boundary of unprecedented clarity and resolution. Analysis of an array of physical and
Holocene thermal maximum in the western Arctic (0-180°W)
Nonuniform response of the major surface currents in the Nordic Seas to insolation forcing: Implications for the Holocene climate variability
[1] High-resolution sediment cores from the Voring Plateau, the North Iceland shelf, and the East Greenland shelf have been studied to investigate the stability of major surface currents in the
History of sea ice in the Arctic
A mid-Holocene shift in Arctic sea-ice variability on the East Greenland Shelf
Records of iceberg-rafting and palaeohydrography from two East Greenland shelf cores (JM96-1206/1-GC and JM96-1207/1-GC) are reported. Benthic foraminifera, stable isotopes and IRD fluxes indicate a
Relationships between synoptic-scale atmospheric circulation and glacier mass balance in south-western Canada during the International Hydrological Decade, 1965-74Brent Yarnal 199-211The use of
A simple equation is derived relating the net mass-balance and hypsometric curves of a steady-state valley glacier. It is used to examine how valley shape is linked to disparate extents and responses
