Dating early and middle Pleistocene glaciations in central Yukon by tephrochronology


The late Cenozoic deposits of central Yukon contain numerous distal tephra beds, derived from vents in the Wrangell Mountains and Aleutian arc-Alaska Peninsula region. The AA. use a few of these tephra beds to gain a better understanding on the timing of extensive Pleistocene glaciations that affected this area. This approach relies on the tephrochronological method, augmented by glass-fission-track, K-Ar, and TL (thermoluminescence) ages, which are supported at some localities by paleomagnetic information
