Glacial and Climate History of the Antarctic Peninsula since the Last Glacial Maximum

  author={{\'O}lafur A. Ing{\'o}lfsson and Christian Hjort and Ole Humlum},
Abstract During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), ice thickened considerably and expanded toward the outer continental shelf around the Antarctic Peninsula. Deglaciation occurred between >14 ka BP and ca. 6 ka BP, when interglacial climate was established in the region. Deglaciation of some local sites was as recent as 4–3 ka BP. After a climate optimum, peaking ca. 4–3 ka BP, a distinct climate cooling occurred. It is characterized at a number of sites by expanding glaciers and ice shelves… 

Late Quaternary Glaciation of Antarctica

Glacial and climate history of the Firth of Tay, northeastern Antarctic peninsula

Glacial and climate history of the Firth of Tay, northeastern Antarctic Peninsula by Bradley Ross Michalchuk This study presents the Holocene deglacial and climate history from the Firth of Tay,

The Last Glacial Maximum

The responses of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres differed significantly, which reveals how the evolution of specific ice sheets affected sea level and provides insight into how insolation controlled the deglaciation.

Environmental responses of the Northeast Antarctic Peninsula to the Holocene climate variability

In this study, we present a unique high-resolution Holocene record of oceanographic and climatic change based on analyses of diatom assemblages combined with biomarker data from a sediment core

A record of Holocene glacial and oceanographic variability in Neny Fjord, Antarctic Peninsula

Analyses of a 12 m marine sediment core from Neny Fjord, Marguerite Bay, Antarctic Peninsula (68.2571°S, 66.9617°W), yield a high-resolution record of Holocene climate variability. The sediments

Loughborough University Institutional Repository Reconstruction of icesheet changes in the Antarctic Peninsula since the Last Glacial Maximum

This paper compiles and reviews marine and terrestrial data constraining the dimensions and configuration of the Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheet (APIS) from the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) through



Antarctic glacial history since the Last Glacial Maximum: an overview of the record on land

This overview examines available circum-Antarctic glacial history archives on land, related to developments after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). It considers the glacial-stratigraphic and

The Antarctic contribution to Holocene global sea level rise

The Holocene glacial and climatic development in Antarctica differed considerably from that in the Northern Hemisphere. Initial deglaciation of inner shelf and adjacent land areas in Antarctica dates

Glacial-Marine Sedimentation and Quaternary Glacial History of Marguerite Bay, Antarctic Peninsula

Chronology of late Wisconsin ice retreat from the western Ross Sea, Antarctica

Lithologic data from marine sedimentary cores and accelerator mass spectrometer (AMS) radiocarbon dates indicate that grounded ice did not advance to the western Ross Sea continental shelf edge

Late Quaternary Glacial History of George VI Sound Area, West Antarctica

Advance of East Antarctic outlet glaciers during the Hypsithermal: Implications for the volume state of the Antarctic ice sheet under global warming

We present the first circum-East Antarctic chronology for the Holocene, based on 17 radiocarbon dates generated by the accelerator method. Marine sediments from around East Antarctica contain a

Volume of Antarctic Ice at the Last Glacial Maximum, and its impact on global sea level change

Deep sea-floor evidence of past ice streams off the Antarctic Peninsula

The past existence of a giant ice stream off the northern end of the Antarctic Peninsula is suggested by a convex-upward, elongated sediment body now at a mean water depth of 1000 m. Because of its
