Record #180008:

Younger Dryas cirque glaciers in western Spitsbergen: smaller than during the Little Ice Age / Jan Mangerud, Jon Y. Landvik.

Title: Younger Dryas cirque glaciers in western Spitsbergen: smaller than during the Little Ice Age / Jan Mangerud, Jon Y. Landvik.
Author(s): Mangerud, Jan.
Landvik, Jon Y.
Date: 2007.
In: Boreas. (2007.), Vol. 36(3) (2007)
Abstract: Presents radiocarbon dates from Allerød-age shoreline overlain by Little Ice Age (LIA) moraines demonstrating that Scottbreen, a cirque glacier on west coast of Spitsbergen was smaller during Younger Dryas (YD) than at LIA maximum extent c. AD 1900. Notes contrast with glaciers of mainland western Europe, which where much larger during YD, and those elsewhere in Spitsbergen, which reacted more or less in concert with those in western Europe. Explains this by starvation of precipitation in western Spitsbergen during YD. Discusses timing and extent of glacier advances and compares reconstructed LIA and YD ELAs with that of present.
