Record #207729:

Volcanic triggering of glaciation / J.R. Bray.

Title: Volcanic triggering of glaciation / J.R. Bray.
Author(s): Bray, J. R.
Date: 1976.
In: Nature. (1976.), Vol. 260(5550) (1976)
Abstract: Considers model in which formation of large Pleistocene ice sheets depends on sudden buildup of permanent snow cover over sub-Arctic upland plateaux, which depends in turn on survival of snow cover over a large area for a single summer and subsequent feedback reactions leading to icefields. Presents case that such snow cover survival could have resulted from one or several closely spaced massive volcanic ash eruptions.
