      Salonen, J. Sakari; Helmens, Karin F.; Brendryen, Jo; Kuosmanen, Niina; Väliranta, Minna; Goring, Simon; Korpela, Mikko; Kylander, Malin; Philip, Annemarie; Plikk, Anna; Renssen, Hans; Luoto, Miska (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-07-20)
      The Eemian (the Last Interglacial; ca. 129–116 thousand years ago) presents a testbed for assessing environmental responses and climate feedbacks under warmer-than-present boundary conditions. However, climate syntheses ...
    • Eurasian Ice Sheet collapse was a major source of Meltwater Pulse 1A 14,600 years ago 

      Brendryen, Jo; Haflidason, Haflidi; Yokoyama, Yusuke; Haaga, Kristian Agasøster; Hannisdal, Bjarte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Rapid sea-level rise caused by the collapse of large ice sheets is a threat to human societies. In the last deglacial period, the rate of global sea-level rise peaked at more than 4 cm yr−1 during Meltwater Pulse 1A, which ...
    • Rapid climate changes during the Lateglacial and the early Holocene as seen from plant community dynamics in the Polar Urals, Russia 

      Bjune, Anne E.; Greve Alsos, Inger; Brendryen, Jo; Edwards, Mary E.; Haflidason, Haflidi; Johansen, Maren S.; Mangerud, Jan; Paus, Aage; Regnéll, Carl; Svendsen, John-Inge; Clarke, Charlotte L. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      A detailed, well-dated record of pollen and sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA) for the period 15 000–9500 cal a bp describes changes at Lake Bolshoye Shchuchye in the Polar Ural Mountains, located far east of the classical ...
    • Re-evaluation and extension of the Marine Isotope Stage 5 tephrostratigraphy of the Faroe Islands region: The cryptotephra record 

      Abbott, Peter M.; Austin, William E.N.; Davies, Siwan M.; Pearce, Nicholas John Geoffrey; Rasmussen, Tine Lander; Wastegård, Stefan; Brendryen, Jo (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-09-01)
      Previous studies of marine sequences from the Faroe Islands region have identified a series of coarse-grained tephra horizons deposited during Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 5. Here we reassess the MIS 5 tephrostratigraphy of ...
