Late-glacial to Holocene glaciers in the Turkish mountains

Although Turkey is a mid-latitude country, because of its relatively high topography it hosted Quaternary glaciers on its mountains. Some of these high mountains (> 3500 m above sea level) still

Was the Little Ice Age the coolest Holocene climatic period in the Italian central Alps?

The Estimation of the relative intensity of different cold periods occurring during the Late Quaternary is a difficult task, particularly in non-glaciated mountain landscapes and where high- to

The relative contributions of weathering and aeolian inputs to postglacial formation of Mediterranean alpine loess

Between the southern margin of the European loess belt and Sahara Desert, thin and irregularly distributed loess deposits occur in Mediterranean mountains. During the most recent deglaciation, along

Post‐little ice age paraglacial processes and landforms in the high Iberian mountains: A review

Three Iberian mountain ranges encompassed glaciers during the Little Ice Age (LIA): the Pyrenees, Cantabrian Mountains, and Sierra Nevada. The gradual warming trend initiated during the second half

The Medieval Climate Anomaly in the Mediterranean Region

The Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) is a preindustrial phase of pronounced natural climate variability with a core period from 1000 to 1200 CE. The paper presents a synthesis that integrates

Heinrich Stadial aridity forced Mediterranean-wide glacier retreat in the last cold stage

Throughout the last cold stage, the North Atlantic region was punctuated by abrupt climate shifts and atmospheric processes propagated their effects to adjacent continents. During Heinrich Stadials,

Speleothem U/Th age constraints for the Last Glacial conditions in the Apuan Alps, northwestern Italy

Aberystwyth University Is that a relict rock glacier ?

18 The distribution of rock glaciers is often used to investigate the occurrence of permafrost in mountain areas 19 and to understand their climate and paleoclimate evolution. This requires the



Permafrost–glacial evolution during the Holocene in the Italian Central Alps

This paper discusses the Holocene evolution of two sites in the Central Italian Alps, the Foscagno Valley and the Stelvio–Livrio area, in terms of the interaction between permafrost distribution and

Late Pleistocene glaciers and climate in the Mediterranean

Quaternary glaciation in the Mediterranean mountains: a new synthesis

Abstract The Mediterranean mountains were repeatedly glaciated during the Pleistocene. Glaciers were present in most of the major mountains areas from Morocco in the west to the Black Sea coast of

Timing of glaciation in the Mediterranean mountains during the last cold stage

Recent research in the mountains of the Mediterranean has attempted to establish the timing of the maximum extent of glaciers during the last cold stage. Several dating methods have been utilised and

The Little Ice Age in Iberian mountains

Little Ice Age glaciers in the Mediterranean mountains

Only a few small glaciers survive today in the Mountains of the Mediterranean. Notable examples are found in the Pyrenees, Maritime Alps, Italian Apennines, the Dinaric and Albanian Alps and the

Coupling patterns between para‐glacial and permafrost degradation responses in Antarctica

The recently deglaciated environments in maritime permafrost regions are usually affected by very active paraglacial processes. Elephant Point is an ice‐free area of 1.16 km2 located in the SW of
