Record #195018:

Chronology and styles of glaciation in and inter-fjord setting, northwestern Svalbard / Helena Alexanderson, Jon Y. Landvik, Heidi T. Ryen.

Title: Chronology and styles of glaciation in and inter-fjord setting, northwestern Svalbard / Helena Alexanderson, Jon Y. Landvik, Heidi T. Ryen.
Author(s): Alexanderson, Helena.
Landvik, Jon Y.
Ryen, Heidi T.
Date: 2011.
In: Boreas. (2011.), Vol. 40(1) (2011)
Abstract: Investigates 30-m thick sedimentary succession spanning last two glacial-interglacial cycles at Leinstranda on southwestern coast of Brøggerhalvøya. Employs stratigraphical and sedimentological techniques and ground-penetrating radar and establishes absolute chronology based on OSL dating. Identifies facies associations representing depositional settings related to advancing, overriding and retreating glaciers, marine and littoral conditions and periglacial surfaces. Environmental changes show approximate cyclicity, reflecting glaciations followed by high sea-levels and later regression. Identifies four sea-level highstands that constrain timing of Leinstranda glaciations, and three distinct sources of ice to area. Discusses how deposits reflect ice-sheet evolution in inter-fjord area.
