The growth and decay of the Late Weichselian ice sheet in western Svalbard and adjacent areas based on provenance studies of marine sediments


This paper presents new evidence on the glacial history of the Svalbard archipelago and the northwestern Barents Sea during the Late Weichselian, based on the marine sedimentary record. Emphasis is given to the ice-sheet history of the western part of the Svalbard archipelago because it is well reflected in the sediment cores along a continent-sea transect from the Isfjorden to the adjacent continental shelf and upper slope to the west. In addition, cores from the lower continental slope and the adjacent deep sea are used to monitor the broader glacial signal of the Svalbard and northwestern Barents Sea Ice Sheet
