Record #202411:

Plio-Pleistocene landscape and vegetation reconstruction of the coastal area of the Tjörnes Peninsula, northern Iceland / Koen Verhoeven, Stephen Louwyew, Jón Eiríksson.

Title: Plio-Pleistocene landscape and vegetation reconstruction of the coastal area of the Tjörnes Peninsula, northern Iceland / Koen Verhoeven, Stephen Louwyew, Jón Eiríksson.
Author(s): Verhoeven, Koen.
Louwyew, Stephen.
Eiríksson, Jón.
Date: 2013.
In: Boreas. (2013.), Vol. 42(1) (2013)
Abstract: Identifies six pollen zones in Tjörnes area, northenr Iceland, on basis of vegetation changes, and interprets in terms of presence or absence of specific vegetation habitats caused by relative sea-level changes. Observed variations in pollen signal of Tjörnes beds appear not to be linked to temperature variations, but can probably be attributed to loss and gain of local habitats. Depositional basin was affected by faulting, and this led to development of wide coastal plain sensitive to marine ingressions. Depending on height of water table, poorly drained marshes, dry pastures and heathland could have developed intermittently.
