Deglaciation history of Latvia / Vitālijs Zelčs, Aivars Markots.

Title: Deglaciation history of Latvia / Vitālijs Zelčs, Aivars Markots.
Author(s): Zelčs, Vitālijs.
Markots, Aivars.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Amsterdam: Elsevier
In: Quaternary glaciations - extent and chronology : Part I Europe. (2004.),
Abstract: Complements digital maps included with volume. Reviews studies of Late Weichselian deglaciation of Latvia. Presents overview of surface topography and glacier dynamics. Latvia was at inner margin of depositional zone of Fennoscandian ice sheet, was affected by Baltic, Rīga and Peipsijärv ice streams, and became ice free around 16-18 kyr BP, with ice sheet finally retreating from Latvia around 14-12 kyr BP. Periglacial conditions persisted until beginning of Holocene. Discusses glacial landforms and ice-marginal formations, including moraines, ice-dammed lakes (distribution map) and proglacial fluvial systems. Reviews stratigraphical evidence and lists age determinations of Pleistocene deposits. Places events of last glaciation in Latvia within Weichselian chronostratigraphy in north-west Europe and oxygen-isotope stratigraphy.
