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 ...
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 ...
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 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 BP, ...
