Lacustrine sediment studies. A technique to obtain a continuous record of Holocene glacier variations

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A continuous record of Holocene glacier fluctuations cannot be obtained with the techniques currently in use, which are mostly based on the dating of moraines. The likelihood of obtaining a continuous record by studying sediment cores taken from lakes receiving glacial meltwater is discussed. Sediments from four lakes receiving glacial meltwater are discussed, and then compared with sediments from a lake not receiving glacial meltwater. Characteristic differences were observed in the inorganic content of the sediments| sediments from non-glacial lakes were much more homogenous.
