Deglaciation of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the Last Glacial Maximum.
The last deglaciation of the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) was associated with major reorganisations in the ocean-climate system and its retreat also represents a valuable analogue for understanding the

The southern Laurentide Ice Sheet
Rapid Laurentide ice-sheet advance towards southern last glacial maximum limit during marine isotope stage 3
Late Wisconsinan buildup and wastage of the Innuitian Ice Sheet across southern Ellesmere Island, Nunavut
During the Late Wisconsinan, a precursor of the Prince of Wales Icefield, southern Ellesmere Island, formed a prodigious ice divide of the Innuitian Ice Sheet. Initial buildup occurred after 19 ka
On the limited ice intrusion in Alaska at the LGM
The Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) Laurentide Ice Sheet covered most of the North American continent poleward of 40°N, with the exception of Alaska that remained relatively warm, dry, and largely ice


Late Wisconsinan ice retreat from the Scotian Shelf
The late middle to late Wisconsinan Laurentide ice sheet terminated at the edge of the Scotian Shelf ca. 21 ka, in close temporal agreement with the H-2 Heinrich event of the North Atlantic
Late Wisconsinan Glaciation of the Central Sector of the Canadian High Arctic
Geomorphic and chronological evidence from Cornwall Island in the Canadian High Arctic Archipelago provides direct evidence for the age and dynamics of the center and northern flank of the Innuitian
The Great Lakes region stands out as the most central, most southwardprotruding part of the Laurentide ice sheet, extending almost to the 39th parallel into the Mississippi-Ohio basin during the Late
Origin of the first global meltwater pulse following the Last Glacial Maximum
Well-dated sea level records show that the glacioeustatic rise following the last glacial maximum was characterized by two or possibly three brief intervals of rapid sea level rise separating periods
The deglaciation of Atlantic Canada as reconstructed from the postglacial relative sea-level record
The post-Wisconsinan relative sea-level record from Atlantic Canada is used to reconstruct the morphology of late Wisconsinan age ice cover during its retreat from the Atlantic region. The proposed
Cosmogenic 10Be and 26Al ages for the Last Glacial Maximum, eastern Baffin Island, Arctic Canada
A chronology for the Last Glacial Maximum based on cosmogenic exposure dating in the Pangnirtung Fjord area, eastern Baffin Island, Arctic Canada, is at odds with many decades of land-based, glacial
