Record-breaking height for 8000-Year-Old tsunami in the North Atlantic

Calendar year age estimates of Allerød - Younger Dryas sea-level oscillations at Os, western Norway
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2004)
A detailed shoreline displacement curve documents the Younger Dryas transgression in western Norway. The relative sea-level rise was more than 9m in an area which subsequently experienced an emergence of almost 60 m. The ...
The start of a major sea-level rise indicates that icesheet expansion in western Norway commenced before the Younger Dryas
The relative sea level rose 10 m on Sotra, western Norway, during the Younger Dryas (YD). Based on dating of isolation basins, the transgression started in late Allerød at ~13 110 and ended in late YD at ~11 780 cal yr ...

The last Eurasian Ice Sheets - a chronological database and time-slice reconstruction
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of The Boreas Collegium, 2016-10-09)
We present a new time-slice reconstruction of the Eurasian ice sheets (British–Irish, Svalbard–Barents–Kara Seas and Scandinavian) documenting the spatial evolution of these interconnected ice sheets every 1000 years from ...
Atmosphere-driven ice sheet mass loss paced by topography: Insights from modelling the south-western Scandinavian Ice Sheet
Marine-terminating glaciers and ice streams are important controls of ice sheet mass balance. However, understanding of their long-term response to external forcing is limited by relatively short observational records of ...
Evidence for three North Sea tsunamis at the Shetland Islands between 8000 and 1500 years ago
(Elsevier Ltd., 2005-08)
Coastal fen- and lake deposits enclose sand layers that record at least three Holocene tsunamis at the Shetland Islands. The oldest is the well-known Storegga tsunami (ca 8100 cal yr BP), which at the Shetlands invaded ...
The timing of deglaciation and the sequence of pioneer vegetation at Ringsaker, eastern Norway – and an earthquake-triggered landslide
(Geological Society of Norway, 2018)
We describe a sediment sequence comprising a thick till covered by thin beds of lacustrine sediments containing pollen and plant macrofossils derived from pioneer vegetation. Four consistent radiocarbon dates on terrestrial ...
Ice-flow patterns and precise timing of ice sheet retreat across a dissected fjord landscape in western Norway
We reconstruct patterns of ice flow and retreat of the southwestern Scandinavian Ice Sheet, from 2900 field observations of glacial striae and elevation measurements of 60 ice-marginal-deltas from a high-resolution LiDAR ...
Tracing the last remnants of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet: Ice-dammed lakes and a catastrophic outburst flood in northern Sweden
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019-08-08)
We present geomorphological evidence of large, previously undocumented, early Holocene ice-dammed lakes in the Scandinavian Mountains of northwestern Sweden. The lakes extents indicate that the last remnants of the ...
