Record #153275:

A summary of the environmental history of the Skagi peninsula, northern Iceland, 11 300-7 800 BP / Mats Rundgren.

Title: A summary of the environmental history of the Skagi peninsula, northern Iceland, 11 300-7 800 BP / Mats Rundgren.
Author(s): Rundgren, Mats.
Date: 1999.
In: Jökull. (1999.), Vol. 47 (1999)
Abstract: Summarises Late Weichselian and early Holocene changes in vegetation, climate and sea level. Grass-tundra vegetation and low productive lakes, in cold conditions, gave way to milder weather with expansion of dwarf shrubs and more limnic production. Younger Dryas cold event began with abrupt cooling to previous conditions and marine transgression. Holocene opened with abrupt warming and herb-tundra, with lakes silting. Process continued. Climatic reconstruction fits well with data from rest of North Atlantic, showing close connection with deglacial ocean circulation changes.
