Analysis of a Miocene‐Pleistocene ice‐rafted debris (IRD) record from the western Irminger Basin provides evidence for the initiation and long‐term behavior of the SE portion of the Greenland Ice Sheet. In the late Miocene (˜7.3 Ma), IRD supply to Ocean Drilling Program site 918 increased significantly indicating that glaciers large enough to reach sea level were present in SE Greenland long before the onset of widespread Northern Hemisphere glaciation. IRD accumulated at this site throughout… 
Cenozoic ice‐rafting history of the central Arctic Ocean: Terrigenous sands on the Lomonosov Ridge
The Cenozoic ice-rafted debris (IRD) history of the central Arctic is reconstructed utilizing the terrigenous coarse sand fraction in IODP 302 cores from 0 to 273 meters composite depth. This
Repeated ice streaming on the northwest Greenland continental shelf since the onset of the Middle Pleistocene Transition
Abstract. Ice streams provide a fundamental control on ice sheet discharge and depositional patterns along glaciated margins. This paper investigates ancient ice streams by presenting the first 3D
Glacial geology and palaeo-ice dynamics of two ice-sheet margins, Taymyr Peninsula, Siberia and Jameson Land, East Greenland
The North Taymyr ice-marginal zone (NTZ) on the Taymyr Peninsula, Arctic Siberia and the Ugleelv Valley on Jameson Land, East Greenland, have been investigated with the aim of reconstructing the
Glaciations and climate in the Cenozoic Arctic : evidence from microtextures of ice-rafted quartz grains
Numerous efforts have been made in recent decades to recover the climate history of the Arctic region. The present PhD study is one of them, focusing on terrestrial sediments which were deposited in
Possible Role for Tectonics in the Evolving Stability of the Greenland Ice Sheet
The history of the Greenland Ice Sheet has been influenced by the geodynamic response to ice sheet fluctuations, and this interaction may help explain past deglaciations under modest climate forcing.
A re-evaluation of the Pleistocene behavior of the Scoresby Sund sector of the Greenland Ice Sheet
Limited data on the past dynamics of the Greenland Ice Sheet, exceeding the ice-core records, have led to partly contradictory reconstructions. Whereas the Scoresby Sund sector of the Greenland Ice
