Record #187274:

A 10,400 year-old bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) skull from Ellef Ringnes Island, Nunavut: implications for sea ice conditions in High Arctic Canada at end of last glaciation / Nigel Atkinson.

Title: A 10,400 year-old bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) skull from Ellef Ringnes Island, Nunavut: implications for sea ice conditions in High Arctic Canada at end of last glaciation / Nigel Atkinson.
Author(s): Atkinson, Nigel.
Date: 2009.
In: Arctic. (2009.), Vol. 62(1) (2009)
Abstract: Reports discovery of 10.4 ka BP bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) skull on Ellef Ringnes Island, 700 km north of previously reported early Holocene range. Infers that sea ice along polar margin of Canadian Arctic Archipelago was less extensive than previously recognised. Both biological and glaciological evidence suggest reduction in sea-ice extent was result of climate forcing, amplified by meltwater-driven outflows from rapidly retreating marine-based sector of Innuitian Ice Sheet.
