  • Abstract There are three main difficulties in constructing detailed time series for Late Quaternary glacier fluctuations in the Southern Ocean-sub-Antarctic region: sea level control on ice extent, differential tectonics and lack of material for radiometric dating. South of 60°S, the glacial Equilibrium Line Altitude is low enough for glaciers to expand without a decrease in temperature, if sea level falls. Thus most tidewater glaciers in this region are not reliable indicators of small scale… CONTINUE READING
