Record #143837:

The last Scandinavian ice sheet and its down-wasting / Jan Lundqvist.

Title: The last Scandinavian ice sheet and its down-wasting / Jan Lundqvist.
Author(s): Lundqvist, Jan.
Date: 1997.
Publisher: New York: Oxford University Press
In: Late glacial and postglacial environmental changes : Quaternary, Carboniferous-Permian, and Proterozoic. (1997.), Vol. 3
Abstract: Article describes means by which various kinds of deposit are made by glaciers on land and under floating ice. It then describes glacials and interglacials in Europe, leading to clearest set of remains - from most recent ice cover. Deglaciation was influenced by topography; active glaciers could create push moraines. It is still open question whether areal down-wasting or margin retreat dominated. During Younger Dryas, erosion increased behind margin. After it, collapse of ice sheet was quick. Till can be 50 m thick away from mountains.
