Abstract Core A9-EB2 from the eastern Bransfield Basin, Antarctic Peninsula, consists of pelagic (diatom ooze-clay couplets and bioturbated diatom ooze) and hemipelagic (bioturbated mud) sediments interbedded with turbidites (homogeneous mud and silt–clay couplets). The cyclic and laminated nature of these pelagic sediments represents alternation between the deposition of diatom-rich biogenic sediments and of terrigenous sediments. Sediment properties and geochemical data explain the… 

Holocene climate change in the Bransfield Basin, Antarctic Peninsula: evidence from sediment and diatom analysis

Abstract We present the first study from the Bransfield Basin that extends through the Holocene, recording the variable climate history back to the decoupling of the ice sheet from the continental

Off King George Island (western Antarctic Peninsula) major and trace elements were studied in porewaters and sedimentary archives. The results of provenance analyses conducted on marine sediments

Glacial and climate history of the Firth of Tay, northeastern Antarctic peninsula

Glacial and climate history of the Firth of Tay, northeastern Antarctic Peninsula by Bradley Ross Michalchuk This study presents the Holocene deglacial and climate history from the Firth of Tay,

Reconstruction of postglacial paleoproductivity in Long Lake, King George Island, West Antarctica

A sediment core (LS−1) collected from Long Lake in King George Island, South Shetland Islands (West Antarctica) was analyzed for a variety of textural, geochemical, iso− topic and paleontological

Holocene Variations of Organic Carbon Contents in Lake Langer of King George Island, South Shetland Islands, West Antarctica

A sediment core drilled from Lake Langer on King George Island was analyzed for a variety of textural and geochemical properties along with 14 C age dates. These data were combined with published

Absence of a Medieval Climate Anomaly, Little Ice Age and twentieth century warming in Skarvsnes, Lützow Holm Bay, East Antarctica

Abstract Palaeoclimate changes, such as the Medieval Climate Anomaly and the Little Ice Age, are well-defined in the Northern Hemisphere during the past 2000 years. In contrast, these anomalies

The Antarctic Peninsula (AP) is one of the fastest-warming regions on Earth. To assess whether this warming is part of the natural variability in the climate system, palaeoclimate archives are used



Bransfield Basin fine-grained sediments: late-Holocene sedimentary processes and Antarctic oceanographic conditions

The Antarctic Peninsula is sensitive to climatic change due to its northerly position and to the relatively reduced volume and character of its ice cover. High-resolution palaeoclimatic records from

Record of Holocene glacial oscillations in Bransfield Basin as revealed by siliceous microfossil assemblages

Two gravity cores, Gebra-1 and Gebra-2 from the central and eastern basins of Bransfield Strait, West Antarctica, consist mainly of hemipelagic, laminated muds with black layers rich in sand-sized

Productivity cycles of 200–300 years in the Antarctic Peninsula region: Understanding linkages among the sun, atmosphere, oceans, sea ice, and biota

Compared to the rest of the world9s oceans, high-resolution late Holocene paleoclimatic data from the Southern Ocean are still rare. We present a multiproxy record from a sediment core retrieved from

Chronology of the Palmer Deep site, Antarctic Peninsula: a Holocene palaeoenvironmental reference for the circum-Antarctic

Palmer Deep sediment cores are used to produce the first high-resolution, continuous late Pleistocene to Holocene time-series from the Antarctic marine system. The sedimentary record is dated using

Late Holocene advance of the Müller Ice Shelf, Antarctic Peninsula: sedimentological, geochemical and palaeontological evidence

Marine sediment cores were obtained from in front of the Müller Ice Shelf in Lallemand Fjord, Antarctic Peninsula in the austral summer of 1990–91. Sedimentological and geochemical data from these
