Record #152228:

Glaciated landscapes along Smith Sound, Ellesmere Island, Canada and Greenland / Weston Blake, Jr.

Title: Glaciated landscapes along Smith Sound, Ellesmere Island, Canada and Greenland / Weston Blake, Jr.
Author(s): Blake, Weston,
Date: 1999.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1999.), Vol. 28 (1999)
Abstract: Describes glacial features of Smith Sound, between Ellesmere Island and Greenland, and their formation. North-south oriented glacial features along outermost coasts of Smith Sound contrast with present-day eastward flow of outlet glaciers from Prince of Wales Icefield (Ellesmere Island) and westward flow from Greenland ice sheet. ¹⁴C dating shows glacier ice had receded from Ellesmere Island coast of Smith Sound by 9000 ¹⁴C yr BP, though heads of fiords to west and north-west were not ice-free until 45 ¹⁴C yr BP.
Notes:
