A high-resolution study of Holocene paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic changes in the Nordic Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-26)
High-resolution records from IMAGES core MD95-2011 in the eastern Norwegian Sea provide evidence for relatively large- and small-scale high-latitude climate variability throughout the Holocene. During the early and ...
Eight-hundred-year temperature variability from the Norwegian continental margin and the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-17)
Four cores raised from the eastern Norwegian Sea and adjacent Norwegian fjords at sites influenced by Atlantic water have been investigated. Oxygen isotope analyses in benthic and planktonic foraminifera are used as a proxy ...
Environmental changes off North Iceland during the deglaciation and the Holocene: foraminifera, diatoms and stable isotopes
A combined study of foraminifera, diatoms and stable isotopes in marine sediments off North Iceland records major changes in sea surface conditions since about 15800 cal years (yr) BP. Results are presented from two gravity ...
Lake stratigraphy implies an 80 000 yr delayed melting of buried dead ice in northern Russia
Sediment cores from lakes Kormovoye and Oshkoty in the glaciated region of the Pechora Lowland, northern Russia, reveal sediment gravity flow deposits overlain by lacustrine mud and gyttja. The sediments were deposited ...
Spring-summer temperature reconstruction in western Norway 1734-2003: a data-synthesis approach
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2003-12-16)
A series of spring–summer (April–August) temperatures was reconstructed for the period 1734–1923 for western Norway based on multi-proxy data. For the period 1734–1842 the long-term variations were based on terminal moraines ...
Fana har Norges første og beste naturarkiv fra varmetiden før siste istid
(Fana Historielag, 2009)
A late-winter to early-spring temperature reconstruction for southeastern Norway from 1758 to 2006
(International Glaciological Society, 2007-10)
Systematic temperature observations were not undertaken in Norway until the early 19th century, and even then only sporadically. Climate-proxy data may be used to reconstruct temperatures before this period, but until now ...
Deformation bands in porous sandstones, their microstructure and petrophysical properties
(The University of Bergen, 2008-02-27)
Deformation bands are commonly thin tabular zones of crushed or reorganized grains that form in highly porous rocks and sediments. Unlike a fault, typically the slip is negligible in deformation bands. In this dissertation ...
A 1.3-Myr palaeoceanographic record from the continental margin off Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica
A 12.5 m long core was retrieved from the continental margin off Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. Magnetostratigraphy, stable isotopes, 14C accelerator mass spectrometer and amino acid analyses indicate a continuous sediment ...
Late Weichselian (Valdaian) and Holocene vegetation and environmental history of the northern Timan Ridge, European Arctic Russia
Lake and peat deposits from the Timan Ridge, Arctic Russia, were pollen analysed, reconstructing the vegetation history and paleoenvironment since the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) 20–18,000 years ago. The sites studied are ...
