We present the first detailed record of Holocene climate variation from Icelandic eolian soil deposits. Seven cold and windy episodes occurred in Iceland during the past 10 k.y., including the well-documented Little Ice Age (0.6–0.1 ka) and the 8.2 ka event. These windy events are associated with enhanced drift-ice discharge into the North Atlantic, and several are associated with evidence for cold and windy climate in central Greenland and diminution of deep-water formation in the North… CONTINUE READING
