Ventifacts - means to reconstruct glacial development and palaeo-environment in northern and central Sweden / Robert L. Lagerbäck.

Title: Ventifacts - means to reconstruct glacial development and palaeo-environment in northern and central Sweden / Robert L. Lagerbäck.
Author(s): Lagerbäck, Robert L.
Date: 2007.
In: GFF. (2007.), Vol. 129(4) (2007)
Abstract: Describes use of ventifacts in search for pre-Late Weichselian organic sediments at sites preserved from severe erosional impact during latest glaciation. Ventifacts (wind abraded rocks) arose during severe periglacial conditions of Weichselian Tärendö interstadial. Their survival is taken to indicate limited erosional capacity of latest ice sheet, probably due to base being frozen to ground. Reports sampling of sediments from ten sites in central Sweden chosen because of ventifact presence. Discusses palaeo-environmental significance of ventifaction and significance of ventifacts as stratigraphic markers and means of locating sediment archives for past climate and environment.
