Paleolake deposits and cliff retreat on subantarctic Macquarie Island / P.M. Selkirk, T.P. McBride, H.M. Keenan, Donald A. Adamson.

Title: Paleolake deposits and cliff retreat on subantarctic Macquarie Island / P.M. Selkirk, T.P. McBride, H.M. Keenan, Donald A. Adamson.
Author(s): Selkirk, P. M.
McBride, T. P.
Keenan, H. M.
Adamson, Donald A.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Canberra: Australian Defence Force Academy
In: Quaternary Research in Australian Antarctica : Future Directions : proceedings of a meeting held in the Department of Geography and Oceanography, Australian Defence Force Academy, Canberra, 6-7 December 1990. (1991.),
Abstract: Describes six palaeolake deposits dated from terminal Pleistocene to Early-Mid Holocene located at top of cliffs bounding island's plateau. Interpreted as remnants of former plateau lakes extending beyond present plateau margin, drained by cliff retreat due to marine erosion. Preliminary interpretations of lacustrine conditions based on fossil evidence including angiosperms, bryophytes and diatoms.
