Record #118746:

A glaciological throttle on fresh water input to the North Atlantic Ocean during glacial climates / Douglas R. MacAyeal, Hailing Wang.

Title: A glaciological throttle on fresh water input to the North Atlantic Ocean during glacial climates / Douglas R. MacAyeal, Hailing Wang.
Author(s): MacAyeal, Douglas R.
Wang, Hailing.
Date: 1992.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1992.), Vol. 73(43, fall meeting supplement) (1992)
Abstract: Abstract only. Short, rapidly initiated and irregularly occurring cold episodes punctuate palaeoclimate record during glacial periods. Cause appears to be linked to anomalous fresh-water input to North Atlantic. Presents mechanism whereby fresh-water input is throttled by ice-sheet dynamics associated with ice flow through Hudson Strait. This would explain features of these episodes. Model experiments suggest two possible ice-sheet flow configurations in Hudson Bay/Strait region of Laurentide ice sheet.
