The stable isotopic composition (&O 18, &D, d) of 3 Holocene-age ice wedges at the Dmitrii Laptev Strait was studied at high resolution in order to develop palaeoclimatic records. AMS C 14 ages of organic matter in the ice prove the Late Holocene age of the studied horizontal ice-wedge profiles and indicate syngenetic growth associated with sediment accumulation. A general Late Holocene winter warming trend is inferred from &O 18 data with periods of marked variability superimposed on the trend. This trend is accompanied by a shift in the d excess, probably caused by varying proportions of differing moisture sources for precipitation
