Record #118208:

Late Pleistocene and Holocene glacial history of James Ross Island, Antarctic Peninsula / Ólafur Ingólfsson, Christian Hjort, Svante Björck, R.I. Lewis Smith.

Title: Late Pleistocene and Holocene glacial history of James Ross Island, Antarctic Peninsula / Ólafur Ingólfsson, Christian Hjort, Svante Björck, R.I. Lewis Smith.
Author(s): Ingólfsson, Ólafur.
Hjort, Christian.
Björck, Svante.
Lewis Smith, R. I.
Date: 1992.
In: Boreas. (1992.), Vol. 21(3) (1992)
Abstract: Except for indication of early deglaciation around 10 ka BP, field evidence (1987-88 and 1988-89) suggests glacial readvance around 7 ka BP. Concludes that this reflects combined effects of eustatic sea-level rise and Holocene warming, leading to increased precipitation and positive mass balance. Most recent large-scale deglaciation here took place 6 to 5 ka BP, confirming evidence from lake sediments and moss banks in other parts of Antarctic Peninsula which shows that initiation of organic deposition took place after 6 ka BP. Reviews literature on Holocene glacial and environmental history of region in light of this new field evidence.
