Record #88785:

Evidence from Wright Valley for response of the Antarctic ice sheet to climate warming / Michael Lanman Prentice, George H. Denton, Lloyd H. Burckle, David A. Hodell.

Title: Evidence from Wright Valley for response of the Antarctic ice sheet to climate warming / Michael Lanman Prentice, George H. Denton, Lloyd H. Burckle, David A. Hodell.
Author(s): Prentice, Michael Lanman.
Denton, George H.
Burckle, Lloyd H.
Hodell, David A.
Date: 1987.
In: Antarctic Journal of the United States. (1987.), Vol. 22(5) (1987)
Abstract: Suggests that Peleus till (between 2 and 4 to 5 Ma BP) was deposited by thin temperate glacier that was wet-based because of warm climate. This implies that west Antarctic ice sheet was absent and that east Antarctic ice sheet was thicker than it is today.
Notes:
