Abstract

A numerical model of the Eurasian High Arctic ice sheet is used to make predictions about the glaciation of the Kara Sea and Severnaya Zemlya. An inverse approach to modeling is adopted, where ice-sheet margins are forced to match those derived from recent geological investigations. The only parameter allowed to vary within this inverse procedure is the model's paleoclimate (surface air temperature and accumulation). Thus, model results indicate the thickness and dynamics of the ice sheet over the eastern Eurasian High Arctic, and plausible scenarios for the paleoclimate in this region
