    The Late Quaternary (c. ,–10, BP) glacial history of the central west coast of Jameson Land, East Greenland, is reconstructed through glacial stratigraphical major sedimentary units are described and defined. They represent two interglacial events (where one is the Holocene). one interstadial event and two glacial events.

      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. 1a) ∼ km south of Kangerlussuaq, the ice sheet was at its present-day extent by ∼ cal kyr BP (Weidick et al., ).

    The Younger Dryas (aro to 11, years BP) was a return to glacial conditions after the Late Glacial Interstadial, which temporarily reversed the gradual climatic warming after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) started receding aro BP. It is named after an indicator genus, the alpine-tundra wildflower Dryas octopetala, as its leaves are occasionally abundant in late glacial.

Quaternary geology of western and central north Greenland. Copenhagen: Grønlands geologiske undersøgelse, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Michael Kelly; Ole Bennike. 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.

The Greenland Ice Sheet occupies the central bowl, covers much of the fringing mountains, and in places pushes to the coast where it calves into the sea.

Ice-free regions at the fringes of the ice sheet are in most areas mountainous, cut by fiords and contain scattered thin deposits of till and local thick deposits of Quaternary nonglacial.

The mountains and fjords of Greenland preserve a record of nearly four billion years of Earth history - a story of mountain building, volcanic eruptions, primitive life and ice ages.

During the vast period of time, through processes of continental drift, Greenland has journeyed from the southern hemisphere through the tropics to its present polar position. These active faults generally form a north-dipping imbricated thrust zone.

Consistent uplift of the Lesser Himalaya has continued along these faults during late Quaternary time. Cumulative uplift by active faulting is estimated to be as much as 1, m at an average rate of 3 to 4 m/1, yr during the lasttoyr.

The chronology of ice-margin retreat from the latest Pleistocene maximum position on the continental shelf (Funder et al.,Ó Cofaigh et al., ) to the Holocene minimum behind the current ice margin was variable throughout Greenland (Bennike and Björck, ).For example, deglaciation occurred to ka at sites in northern Melville Bugt and > 10 ka at some localities in.

This book is the second of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale. This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers.

In particular the need for accurate ice-front positions is a basic requirement. Notes on the late Cenozoic history of the Washington Land area, western North Greenland Article (PDF Available) in Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland January with 52 Reads.

However, application of these subdivisions has not been rigorously applied in all parts of the text in order to avoid unwieldy phrases.
