Sediment sequences retrieved from Lake Medvedevskoye (60°13'N; 29°54'E) and Lake Pastorskoye (60°13'N; 30°02'E), Karelian Isthmus, northwestern Russia, were analysed for lithology, pollen and diatom stratigraphy, total organic carbon content and mineral magnetic parameters. Age control for both sequences was provided by AMS 14C measurements and the Vedde Ash tephra. The reconstructed climatic and environmental development shows the deglaciation of the sites and the establishment of sparse shrub… 
Timing of Lateglacial vegetation dynamics and respective palaeoenvironmental conditions in southern Estonia: evidence from the sediment record of Lake Nakri
This paper investigates a detailed well‐dated Lateglacial floristic colonisation in the eastern Baltic area, ca. 14 000–9000 cal. a BP, using palynological, macrofossil, loss‐on‐ignition, and 14C
Holocene history of the lake and forest island ecosystem at and around Lake Seliger, Valdai Hills (East European Plain, Russia)
Here, we present a palaeoecological study from the Valdai Hills to examine the Holocene dynamics of forest and lake ecosystems as apparent from the isolated Lake Chernoye, which developed on an
Time‐transgressive early Holocene vegetational succession following shore displacement: a case study from central Sweden
Deglaciation took place in eastern Jämtland and Ångermanland in central Sweden c. 10 500–10 200 cal. yr BP. In the present study, vegetation development and shore displacement during the earliest
14,000-year Carbon Accumulation Dynamics in a Siberian Lake Reveal Catchment and Lake Productivity Changes
A multi-proxy paleolimnological analysis of a sediment core sequence from Lake Malaya Chabyda in Central Yakutia (Eastern Siberia, Russia) was conducted to investigate changes in lake processes,
Deglaciation history of Lake Ladoga (northwestern Russia) based on varved sediments
Lake Ladoga in northwestern Russia is Europe's largest lake. The postglacial history of the Ladoga basin is for the first time documented continuously with high temporal resolution in the upper 13.3
The Holocene spread of Picea abies (L.) Karst. in Fennoscandia and adjacent areas
Aim  The Holocene spread of Picea abies in Fennoscandia is well established from many sites and thus provides an opportunity for detailed study of the dynamics of tree spread and population
Holocene hydrological variability of Lake Ladoga, northwest Russia, as inferred from diatom oxygen isotopes
This article presents a new comprehensive assessment of the Holocene hydrological variability of Lake Ladoga, northwest Russia. The reconstruction is based on oxygen isotopes of lacustrine diatom
Multi‐proxy evidence for early to mid‐Holocene environmental and climatic changes in northeastern Poland
Lauterbach, S., Brauer, A., Andersen, N., Danielopol, D. L., Dulski, P., Hüls, M., Milecka, K., Namiotko, T., Plessen, B., von Grafenstein, U. & DecLakes participants 2010: Multi‐proxy evidence for
Lake stratigraphy implies an 80 000 yr delayed melting of buried dead ice in northern Russia
Sediment cores from lakes Kormovoye and Oshkoty in the glaciated region of the Pechora Lowland, northern Russia, reveal sediment gravity flow deposits overlain by lacustrine mud and gyttja. The


Late- and postglacial history of lakes of the Karelian Isthmus
The Late Pleistocene and Holocene history of five lakes in the central part of Karelian Isthmus, south of the present Vuoksi River, are described on the basis of sediment stratigraphical
Chronology of Vegetation and Paleoclimatic Stages of Northwestern Russia During the Late Glacial and Holocene
We have studied 6 reference sections of bog and lake sediments in the Leningrad and Novgorod provinces to develop a geochronological scale for vegetational and paleoclimatic changes in northwestern
New Radiocarbon Dates for the Vedde Ash and the Saksunarvatn Ash from Western Norway
Abstract The Vedde Ash Bed (mid-Younger Dryas) and the Saksunarvatn Ash (early Holocene) are important regional stratigraphic event markers in the North Atlantic, the Norwegian Sea, and the adjacent
Extending the known distribution of the Younger Dryas Vedde Ash into northwestern Russia
The known distribution of wind-blown Vedde Ash (ca. 10.3 ka BP) has been extended to the Karelian Isthmus in northwestern Russia. This has been possible as the result of a density separation
New discoveries of the Vedde Ash in southern Sweden and Scotland
The Vedde Ash (c. 10 300 14C BP) provides a key time‐parallel marker horizon within the Younger Dryas chronozone or GS‐1 event of the GRIP stratigraphy. Until recently, the known distribution of
Seven tephra isochrones in Scotland
This paper reports the presence and geochemical characteristics of seven separate tephras in Scotland that fell in AD 1510, and about 450 BP, 2100 BP, 3600 BP, 3830 BP, 5600 BP and around 6000 BP.
Late Quaternary Lake-Level Record from Northern Eurasia
Abstract Lake records from northern Eurasia show regionally coherent patterns of changes during the late Quaternary. Lakes peripheral to the Scandinavian ice sheet were lower than those today but
Maximum extent of the Eurasian ice sheets in the Barents and Kara Sea region during the Weichselian
Based on field investigations in northern Russia and interpretation of offshore seismic data, we have made a preliminary reconstruction of the maximum ice‐sheet extent in the Barents and Kara Sea
An event stratigraphy for the Last Termination in the North Atlantic region based on the Greenland ice-core record: a proposal by the INTIMATE group
It is suggested that the GRIP Greenland ice-core should constitute the stratotype for the Last Termination. Based on the oxygen isotope signal in that core, a new event stratigraphy spanning the time
