Abstract

A diatom-based paleolimnological investigation was conducted on late Holocene sediments from a poorly buffered lake, informally named Rock Basin Lake, on Ellesmere Island, Arctic Canada. The reconstructions reveal dramatic changes in diatom composition and ecology that are markedly different from all other high arctic records documented to date. The results strongly suggest that poorly buffered lakes may provide the most sensitive (diatom-based) paleoclimatic reconstructions in the High Arctic
