The last interglacial to glacial transition, Togiak Bay, southwestern Alaska


An 18-m-high coastal bluff at Togiak Bay (northwestern Bristol Bay) exposes marine, lacustrine, fluvial, glacial, volcanic, and organic deposits that record the 50,000-year-long transition from the peak of the last interglaciation to the early Wisconsin glaciation. The tephras, luminescence ages, and correlations with marine isotope stages provide the geochronological control to place the Togiak Bay section into a global context. The site serves as an important new reference section for late Pleistocene paleoenvironmental change in eastern Beringia
