Widespread evidence of an unrecognized late glacial advance across preexisting moraines in western New York is confirmed by 40 14C ages and six new optically stimulated luminescence analyses between the Genesee Valley and the Cattaraugus Creek basin of eastern Lake Erie. The Late Wisconsin chronology is relatively unconstrained by local dating of moraines between Pennsylvania and Lake Ontario. Few published 14C ages record discrete events, unlike evidence in the upper Great Lakes and New… 


Timing of Pleistocene glacial events in New York State
This review of age data for the Pleistocene of New York identifies both strengths and weaknesses in the temporal framework relating the glacial chronology of the Great Lakes region to that of the
The new North American Varve Chronology: A precise record of southeastern Laurentide Ice Sheet deglaciation and climate, 18.2-12.5 kyr BP, and correlations with Greenland ice core records
New glacial varve records from long cores combined with records from key surface exposures and new radiocarbon ages have allowed the correction, consolidation, expansion, and calibration of Ernst
Evidence for meltwater drainage via the St. Lawrence River Valley in marine cores from the Laurentian Channel at the time of the Younger Dryas
Abstract Debate is ongoing about the source(s) and paths of meltwater that drained into the North Atlantic Ocean at the time of the Younger Dryas (YD), especially the eastern route from glacial Lake
Middle Wisconsin glaciation in the Genesee Valley, NY: A stratigraphic record contemporaneous with Heinrich Event, H4
Abstract Two lacustrine deformation tills with ages corresponding closely to North Atlantic Heinrich event, H4, are preserved in the Genesee Valley on the western edge of the Finger Lakes region of
A tree-ring chronology and paleoclimate record for the Younger Dryas–Early Holocene transition from northeastern North America
Spruce and tamarack logs dating from the Younger Dryas and Early Holocene (YD–EH; ∼12.9–11.3k cal a BP) were found at Bell Creek in the Lake Ontario lowlands of the Great Lakes region, North America.
Some problems of late Wisconsin history and geochronology in southeastern Ontario
Palynological studies and radiocarbon dating of sediments from about 20 lakes and bogs in southeastern Ontario have been used to establish a palynostratigraphic sequence of six pollen zones extending
Deglacial to middle Holocene (16,600 to 6000 calendar years BP) climate change in the northeastern United States inferred from multi-proxy stable isotope data, Seneca Lake, New York
Climate change in the northeastern United States has been inferred for the last deglaciation to middle Holocene (∼16,600 to 6000 calendar years ago) using multi-proxy data (total organic matter,
The Quaternary glaciation of western New England with correlations to surrounding areas
Over the last 20 years there have been major improvements to our understanding of the Quaternary glaciation of New England. Numerous Accelerator Mass Spectrometer (AMS) 14C ages of terrestrial plant
A previously unrecognized late-glacial cold event in eastern North America
THE transition between the last glacial period and the present interglacial was marked by pronounced and abrupt changes in climate1,2, one of which, the Younger Dryas event, resulted in a return to
