Abstract

This paper combines a study of glacier fluctuations and palaeoecological changes to determine the environmental history of South Georgia since the last glacial maximum. The most extensive Holocene advance of South Georgia glaciers culminated just before 2 200 yr B.P. The Holocene temperature changes of between 0.5 and 1.0o C are comparable in scale and timing to those identified from recent analyses of Vostok ice cores from the Antarctic ice sheet
