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 chemical parameters within the ice enables the base of the Holocene, as reflected in the first signs of climatic warming at the end of the Younger Dryas/Greenland Stadial 1 cold phase, to be located with a high degree of precision. This climatic event is most clearly reflected in an abrupt shift in… 

Formal ratification of the subdivision of the Holocene Series/Epoch (Quaternary System/Period): two new Global Boundary Stratotype Sections and Points (GSSPs) and three new stages/subseries

The Holocene is probably the most intensively studied series/epoch within the geological record, and embodies a wide array of geomorphological, climatic, biotic and archaeological evidence; yet

A new formal subdivision of the Holocene Series/Epoch in Estonia

Over the past 25 years since the ratification of the last official Holocene Stratigraphic Chart in Estonia, the stratigraphic framework of global Quaternary geology has significantly progressed. The

A transparent framework for defining the Anthropocene Epoch

Lewis and Maslin (2015) applied modern geological requirements to a systematic search for evidence of markers that could be used to define a new geological time unit, the Anthropocene Epoch. These

Three gravity cores were collected from an unexplored site in the northern flank of the Olga Basin, Barents Sea. The lack of data from the central Barents Sea prompted this investigation and led to

Formal Subdivision of the Holocene Series/Epoch: A Summary

The Holocene Series/Epoch is the most recent series/epoch in the geological timescale, spanning the interval from 11,700 yr to the present day. Together with the subadjacent Pleistocene, it comprises

Holocene climate variability in Central Germany and a potential link to the polar North Atlantic: A replicated record from three coeval speleothems

Here, we present high-resolution trace element and stable isotope records from three coeval Holocene stalagmites from the Herbstlabyrinth cave system, Central Germany. All stalagmites were precisely
