  Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world's great geographic regions: the Maritime Far Northeast. For more than three decades, William W. Fitzhugh and Wilfred E. Richard have explored the Northeast’s Atlantic corridor and its fascinating history, habitat, and culture/5(7). This synthesis of the Quaternary geology of Canada and Greenland covers the regional Quaternary geology of Canada, applied Quaternary geology in Canada (including its influence on man's environment), the Quaternary geology of the ice-free areas of Greenland, and the dynamic and climatic history of the Greenland ice-sheet.

The Quaternary glaciation, also known as the Pleistocene glaciation, is an alternating series of glacial and interglacial periods during the Quaternary period that began Ma (million years ago), and is ongoing. Although geologists describe the entire time period as an "ice age", in popular culture the term "ice age" is usually associated with just the most recent glacial period during the. Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quaternary, Third Edition—winner of a Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from The Text and Academic Authors Association—provides a thorough overview of the methods of paleoclimatic reconstruction and of the historical changes in climate during the past three million years.. This thoroughly updated and revised edition systematically.

The second revised edition of the Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science, provides both students and professionals with an up-to-date reference work on this important and highly varied area of are lots of new articles, and many of the articles that appeared in the first edition have been updated to reflect advances in knowledge since , when the original articles were written.

The three major sections of this volume include six chapters describing the regional Quaternary geology of Canada, two describing the Quaternary geology and climatic history of Greenland, and six that review applied Quaternary geology in Canada, including chapters on paleobotanical analysis, geodynamics, geomorphic processes, terrain geochemistry, Quaternary resources, and the influence of the.

In Northeast Greenland, it seems to have a southern boundary at the low-arctic/high-arctic transition at Scoresby Sund. The results of early archaeological field work were summarised by Glob ().

Later archaeological surveys were conducted by BandiAndersenStenico These studies concentrated on remains from the Thule by: Modelling of palaeotemperatures based on modern ice borehole temperatures and ~ values from the GRIP borehole at the summit of the Greenland ice sheet indicate that the mean annual temperature was 25 colder than those of today at sidereal ka BP (Johnsen et al., ), and studies of the Quaternary geology of the ice free parts of Greenland indicate that ice free areas were small and Cited by: Coalescent Greenland and Innuitian ice during the Last Glacial Maximum: revising the Quaternary of the Canadian High Arctic.

The time span covered includes relevant events during the Tertiary which set the stage for the Quaternary glaciations and associated changes in climate, vegetation, and prehistoric human development. Page - Maine, the scratches in sixty -two have a southeasterly course ; that the southeasterly course of the glacial grooves and striae is especially marked in the interior of the State on the high lands and low mountains ; but, approaching the coast, the evidence shows that the glaciers moved down the river valleys, and thus assumed a more north-and-south course, and at times, owing to.

In contrast, regions in the north and south of western Greenland experienced deglaciation to the present-day ice margin position by early Holocene time. Near the Qassimiut lobe in southern Greenland (Fig.

This volume arises from several sessions on sequence stratigraphy held at the Thirteenth International Sedimentological Congress, with emphasis on facies associations within a sequence stratigraphic framework.

The book presents an up-to-date, detailed overview of the Quaternary glaciations all over the world, not only with regard to stratigraphy but also with regard to major glacial landforms and the extent of the respective ice sheets. The locations of key sites are included. The information is presented in digital, uniformly prepared maps which can be used in a Geographical Information System (GIS.

This book reviews advances in understanding of the past ca. two million years of Earth history - the Quaternary Period - in the United States. It begins with sections on ice and water - as glaciers, permafrost, oceans, rivers, lakes, and aquifers. Six chapters are devoted to the high-latitude Pleistocene ice sheets, to mountain glaciations of the western United States, and to permafrost studies.3/5(1).

This chapter focuses on a review of the glaciers on north and northeast Greenland that terminate in fiords with long glacier tongues and floating, ice-shelf-like margins.

There is some debate as to whether these glacier tongues can be classified as a traditional ice shelf, so the relevant literature and physical properties are by: 3. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Weidick, Anker. Review of Quaternary investigations in Greenland.
