Record #119379:

An Early Pleistocene glacial--interglacial cycle in the Breidsvík Group on Tjörnes, Iceland: sedimentary facies, foraminifera, and molluscs / Jón Eiríksson, Karen Luise Knudsen, Már Vilhjálmsson.

Title: An Early Pleistocene glacial--interglacial cycle in the Breidsvík Group on Tjörnes, Iceland: sedimentary facies, foraminifera, and molluscs / Jón Eiríksson, Karen Luise Knudsen, Már Vilhjálmsson.

Date: 1992.
In: Quaternary Science Reviews. (1992.), Vol. 11(7-8) (1992)
Abstract: Aim of study was to obtain data reflecting Early Pleistocene environmental parameters in Iceland. Tjörnes sequence and Breidavík Group contains unique record of Cenozoic glacier variations in North Atlantic. Lithological cycle reflects change from Arctic to boreal Arctic and even to boreal conditions in sea around Iceland just after Olduvai event of Matuyama. Suggests that North Atlantic current crossed Greenland--Iceland and Iceland--Faroe ridges during interglacial periods, resulting in periodic northward shift of polar front during Early Pleistocene.
