Record #112053:

The Weichselian glacial history of west Melrakkaslétta, northeastern Iceland / Halldór G. Pétursson.

Title: The Weichselian glacial history of west Melrakkaslétta, northeastern Iceland / Halldór G. Pétursson.
Author(s): Pétursson, Halldór G.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic
In: Environmental change in Iceland : past and present. (1991.),
Abstract: Part of volcanic zone. Research focused on stratigraphy of sediments in five profiles and on geomorphology. Glacial striae and deglaciation landforms were correlated with Weichselian sediments that were divided into 13 stratigraphical units. Behaviour of ice sheet can be followed through these. Final deglaciation and formation of marine limit is dated to 10.2 ka BP.
