In and out of glacial extremes by way of dust climate feedbacks
(National Academy of Sciences, 2018)
Mineral dust aerosols cool Earth directly by scattering incoming solar radiation and indirectly by affecting clouds and biogeochemical cycles. Recent Earth history has featured quasi-100,000-y, glacial-interglacial climate ...
Glacial and pleistocene geology.
(New York, JOHN WILEY 1957. 553P. CUADRS., FIGS., 2015)
Late Glacial and Holocene glacial history of Monte San Lorenzo, Central Patagonia, Chile.
Many glaciated areas around the world underwent periods of renewed glacial activity during the Last Glacial-Interglacial Transition (LGIT), and later, during the Holocene. Even though important efforts have been made, ...
Late quaternary glaciation history of Isla de los Estados, southeasternmost South America
(Univ Washington, 2010-05)
Isla de los Estados is a mountainous island southeast of Tierra del Fuego, in southernmost South America. Its central and eastern parts have an alpine topography, transected by U-shaped valleys, small, partly over-deepened ...
Evolution of ice-dammed proglacial lakes in Última Esperanza, Chile: Implications from the late-glacial R1 eruption of Reclús volcano, Andean Austral Volcanic Zone Evolución de lagos proglaciales embalsados por hielo en Última Esperanza, Chile: Implicanci
Newly described outcrops, excavations and sediment cores from the region of Última Esperanza, Magallanes, contain tephra derived from the large late-glacial explosive R1 eruption of the Reclús volcano in the Andean Austral ...
Late Holocene fluctuations of Quelccaya Ice Cap, Peru, registered by nearby lake sediments
Records of clastic sediment from lakes that receive glacial meltwater provide a means for inferring past glacial fluctuations. However, increased clastic sedimentation has been interpreted to indicate both glacial advance ...
Late Pleistocene glacial fluctuations in Cordillera Oriental, subtropical Andes
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017-09)
The behavior of subtropical glaciers during Middle to Late Pleistocene global glacial maxima and abrupt climate change events, specifically in Earth´s most arid low-latitude regions, remains an outstanding problem in ...
Radiocarbon chronology of the last glacial maximum and its termination in northwestern Patagonia
We examine the timing and magnitude of the last glacial maximum (LGM) and the last glacial termination (LGT) in northwestern Patagonia, situated in the middle latitudes of South America. Our data indicate that the main ...
