Increased sediment transport via bioturbation at the last glacial-interglacial transition

  title={Increased sediment transport via bioturbation at the last glacial-interglacial transition},
  author={Matthew W. Hughes and Peter C. Almond and Joshua J. Roering}
INTRODUCTION The onset of Quaternary climate variability corresponds with a global increase in terrestrial sediment fl ux to proximal basins (e.g., Molnar, 2004) and accelerated orogenic exhumation (e.g., Shuster et al., 2005). This increase has been attributed to persistent erosion as landscapes , which have response times greater than the period of climate change, perpetually adjust between equilibrium forms (Zhang et al., 2001). These climate-driven variations appear to vary strongly with… CONTINUE READING
