Record #111833:

The Early Weichselian climate in Finland / Lars Forsström.

Title: The Early Weichselian climate in Finland / Lars Forsström.
Author(s): Forsström, Lars.
Date: 1991.
In: Norsk Geologisk Tidsskrift. (1991.), Vol. 71(3) (1991)
Abstract: Presence of organic deposits from this interstadial suggests that area may have then been completely free of ice, with average temperature for July of 10 or 11°C. Possible, however, that deposits represent later stages of last interglacial (Eemian), in which case it is not certain whether evidence of any interstadials is to be found. Further evidence points to possibility that Fennoscandian ice sheet was so extensive throughout Weichselian glaciation that only southern Finland was free of ice during Early Weichselian interstadials and had climate similar to present Greenland.
