Late Quaternary ice-surface fluctuations of Hatherton Glacier, Transantarctic Mountains


By the age model of the AA., the upper reaches of Hatherton Glacier have not exceeded their current elevations by more than 100-150 m during the last two complete global glacial-interglacial cycles, whereas the middle and lower reaches of Hatherton Glacier have thickened considerably during the last two global glaciations (late Wisconsin and marine isotope stage 6). The effect of ice-shelf grounding probably was the major control of these changes of Hatherton Glacier. Holocene ice-surface lowering probably represents the last pulse of grounding-line recession in the southwestern Ross Embayment
