Record #185629:

Glaciation events in the Pliocene - Pleistocene volcanic succession of Iceland / Jón Eiríksson.

Title: Glaciation events in the Pliocene - Pleistocene volcanic succession of Iceland / Jón Eiríksson.
Author(s): Eiríksson, Jón.
Date: 2008.
In: Jökull. (2008.), Vol. 58 (2008)
Abstract: Focusing on past 4 Ma in Iceland, reviews geological evidence for distinct changes in sedimentary and volcanic facies related to glacial expansions during Middle and Late Pliocene and Pleistocene. Notes Iceland's exceptionally long and well preserved glacial record thanks to its climatically sensitive location and frequent lava flows that hamper erosion of underlying sediments. Presents chronology in which glaciation of high-relief mountain areas had begun by 7 Ma BP, with major glaciations occurring at frequency greater than one per 100 ka over last 2.5 Ma. Discusses correlation of events through use of geomagnetic polarity reversals, etc., and difficulty of correlation with marine isotope stratigraphy.
Notes:

Jökull. Vol. 58 :315-329 (2008).
