A combined geomorphological–physical model approach is used to generate three‐dimensional reconstructions of glaciers in Pacific Far NE Russia during the global Last glacial Maximum (gLGM). The horizontal dimensions of these ice masses are delineated by moraines, their surface elevations are estimated using an iterative flowline model and temporal constraints upon their margins are derived from published age estimates. The equilibrium line altitudes (ELAs) of these ice masses are estimated, and… 

Arctic Glacial and Interglacial Variability throughout the Quaternary : Evidence from Lake El ’ gygytgyn , northeastern Russia by

Lake El’gygytgyn in the north-eastern Russian Arctic became the target of extensive international site surveys in the late 1990s, with complex geoscientific fieldwork conducted in 1998, 2000, and

Younger Dryas glaciers and climate in the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland

Here, we present evidence to suggest that the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland, were last occupied by glaciers during the Younger Dryas Stadial. The margins of these glaciers are marked by

Rapid glacial retreat on the Kamchatka Peninsula during the early 21st century

Abstract. Monitoring glacier fluctuations provides insights into changing glacial environments and recent climate change. The availability of satellite imagery offers the opportunity to view these

Paleoglacial and paleoclimate reconstructions during the global Last Glacial Maximum in the Longriba area, eastern Tibetan Plateau

Owing to the remoteness of the Longriba area and the lack of dating records, it is extremely challenging to reconstruct the chronology and extent of the paleoglaciers in this area. In this paper, we

Extensive glaciation in Transbaikalia, Siberia, at the Last Glacial Maximum

Glacial geomorphology of the Altai and Western Sayan Mountains, Central Asia

In this article, we present a map of the glacial geomorphology of the Altai and Western Sayan Mountains, covering an area of almost 600,000 km2. Although numerous studies provide evidence for

In times of global warming a profound understanding of the climate system is necessary to develop mitigation strategies. Studying episodes of climate change during the Earth’s history (e.g.



Evidence for restricted ice extent during the last glacial maximum in the Koryak Mountains of Chukotka, far eastern Russia

Field evidence in the Koryak Mountains‐ Lake Mainitz region of far eastern Russia supports three Pleistocene glacial advances. The early Wisconsinan and pre-Wisconsinan glaciations are represented by

Mountain glaciers of NE Asia in the near future: a projection based on climate-glacier systems' interaction

Abstract. In this study we consider contrasting continental (Orulgan, Suntar-Khayata and Chersky ranges located in the Pole of Cold area at the contact of Atlantic and Pacific influences) and

Equilibrium‐line altitudes during the Last Glacial Maximum across the Brooks Range, Alaska

Equilibrium‐line altitudes (ELAs) were estimated for 383 reconstructed glaciers across the Brooks Range, northern Alaska, to investigate their regional pattern during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM).

Glaciological conditions in seven contrasting regions estimated with the degree-day model

Abstract We apply the degree-day model to seven glacial regions that offer contrasting conditions and are well documented in the World Glacier Inventory. The regions are: Axel Heiberg Island in
