  1. 1. Retreat pattern and dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets: reconstructions based on meltwater features

    Author : Martin Margold; Krister Jansson; Arjen Stroeven; Johan Kleman; Karin Helmens; Chris Stokes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Palaeoglaciology; Cordilleran Ice Sheet; deglaciation; glacial meltwater features; glacial lake; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Glaciers and ice sheets covered extensive areas in the Northern Hemisphere during the last glacial period. Subsequently to the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), they retreated rapidly and, except for Greenland and some other ice caps and glaciers, they vanished after the last glacial termination. READ MORE

  2. 2. Glacial dynamics and till genesis in hilly terrain : A study in the Tallträsk area, central-northern Sweden

    Author : Hans Ivarsson; Mats Jansson; Per Möller; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; till analyses; glacial stratigraphy; subglacial deposition; deglaciation; hilly terrain; northern Sweden; Physical geography; Naturgeografi;

    Abstract : This study deals with the influence of topography on glacial dynamics and the genesis of till in an area of moder-ate bedrock relief. An area 25 km west of Lycksele, northern Sweden, was investigated using geomorphological and sedimentological methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Retreat pattern and dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets: reconstructions based on meltwater features

    Author : Martin Margold; Krister Jansson; Clas Hättestrand; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The pattern of ice marginal retreat during the last deglaciation has, thus far, most frequently been reconstructed using absolute dating methods and landform record. In reconstructions using landform record, meltwater system has most often been neglected. This is predominantly a consequence of the smaller scale of meltwater features. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative controls on the routing of supraglacial meltwater to the bed of glaciers and ice sheets

    Author : Caroline Clason; Douglas Mair; Peter Nienow; University of Aberdeen Geography and Environment; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glaciers Greenland Moulins Supraglacial Crevasses Modelling; geografi med naturgeografisk inriktning; Geography; Physical Geography; Hydrology; hydrologi;

    Abstract : The influence of seasonal influx of supraglacial meltwater on basal water pressures and consequent changes in ice surface velocity has been a focus of research spanning over three decades, particularly focussing on alpine glaciers. Now, with increased recognition for a need to better include glacial hydrology within models of ice dynamics and ice sheet evolution, the ability to predict where and when meltwater is delivered to the subglacial system is paramount, both for understanding the dynamics of alpine glaciers, and of large Arctic ice masses.

  5. 5. The Eemian Interglacial at Sokli, northern Finland : A multi-proxy environmental and climatic reconstruction based on a 9 m long lacustrine sediment sequence

    Author : Anna Plikk; Karin F. Helmens; Oliver Heiri; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Last Interglacial MIS5e ; northern Europe; palaeolimnology; palaeoecology; temperature reconstruction; multiple proxies; climate dynamics; climatic events; Quaternary Geology; kvartärgeologi;

    Abstract : Understanding the fundamentals of the Earth’s climate system during the Quaternary Period (the past ca 2.6 million years) is of imminent interest in light of the reported recent climatic changes. READ MORE
