Evidence for an ice‐free Wrangel Island, northeast Siberia during the Last Glacial Maximum

10Be and 26Al surface exposure ages from 22 tors and bedrock samples from Wrangel Island, northeast Siberia, indicate that the East Siberian and Chukchi shelves were ice‐free during the Last Glacial

Luminescence geochronology for sediments from Lake El’gygytgyn, northeast Siberia, Russia: constraining the timing of paleoenvironmental events for the past 200 ka

This study focused on the luminescence dating of sediments from Lake El’gygytgyn, a meteorite impact crater 100 km north of the Arctic Circle in northeast Siberia, formed 3.58 Ma ago. The sediment is

Deglacial sea level history of the East Siberian Sea and Chukchi Sea margins

Abstract. Deglacial (12.8–10.7 ka) sea level history on the East Siberian continental shelf and upper continental slope was reconstructed using new geophysical records and sediment cores taken during

Quaternary glaciations in the Verkhoyansk Mountains, Northeast Siberia



Emergent Marine Record and Paleoclimate of the Last Interglaciation along the Northwest Alaskan Coast

Abstract The last interglacial high sea-level stand, the Pelukian transgression of isotope substage 5e, is recorded along the western and northern coasts of Alaska by discontinuous but clearly

Pliocene Marine Transgressions of Northern Alaska: Circumarctic Correlations and Paleoclimatic Interpretations'

At least three marine transgressions of Piliocene age are recorded by littoral to inner-shelf sediments of the Gubik Formation, which mantles the Arctic Coastal Plain of northern Alaska. The three

Whole-Rock Aminostratigraphy and Quaternary Sea-Level History of the Bahamas

The surficial geology of the tectonically stable Bahamian archipelago preserves one of the most complete records of middle to late Quaternary sea-level-highstand cycles in the world. However, with

Holocene dwarf mammoths from Wrangel Island in the Siberian Arctic

The dwarfing of the Wrangel mammoths is interpreted as a result of the insularity effect, combined with a response to the general trend towards unfavourable environment in the Holocene.

Aminostratigraphy of Pliocene-Pleistocene high-sea-level deposits, Nome coastal plain and adjacent nearshore area, Alaska

Amino acid epimerization ratios (aIle/Ile) measured in 295 fossil molluscan shells of 3 genera provide a basis to evaluate the number and relative timing of high-sea-level events represented by

Late Quaternary Lacustrine Pollen Records from Southwestern Beringia

Abstract Sediment cores from three lakes in the Upper Kolyma region, northeast Russia, provide the first well-dated continuous record of late Quaternary vegetation change from far southwestern

Ice shelves in the Pleistocene Arctic Ocean inferred from glaciogenic deep-sea bedforms

Backscatter images and sub-bottom profiler records obtained during the submarine SCICEX expedition in 1999 show multiple bedforms indicative of glacial scouring and moulding of sea floor, combined with large-scale erosion of submarine ridge crests, demonstrating that immense, Antarctic-type ice shelves existed in the Arctic Ocean during Pleistocene glaciations.
