• Climate, glacial and vegetation history of the Polar Ural Mountains since early MIS 2 inferred from a 54-m-long sediment core from Lake Bolshoye Shuchye 

      Lenz, Marlene M.; Andreev, Andrei; Nazarova, Larisa; Syrykh, Liudmila S.; Scheidt, Stephanie; Haflidason, Haflidi; Meyer, Hanno; Brill, Dominik; Wagner, Bernd; Gromig, Raphael; Lenz, Matthias; Rolf, Christian; Kuhn, Gerhard; Fedorov, Grigoriy; Svendsen, John Inge; Melles, Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Because continuous and high-resolution records are scarce in the polar Urals, a multiproxy study was carried out on a 54 m long sediment succession (Co1321) from Lake Bolshoye Shchuchye. The sedimentological, geochemical, ...
    • Deglaciation of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet and a Younger Dryas ice cap in the outer Hardangerfjorden area, southwestern Norway 

      Regnéll, Carl; Briner, Jason P.; Haflidason, Haflidi; Mangerud, Jan; Svendsen, John Inge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Understanding past responses of ice sheets to climate change provides an important long-term context for observations of present day, and projected future, ice-sheet change. In this work, we reconstruct the deglaciation ...
    • High‐resolution chronology of 24 000‐year long cores from two lakes in the Polar Urals, Russia, correlated with palaeomagnetic inclination records with a distinct event about 20 000 years ago 

      Haflidason, Haflidi; Brendryen, Jo; Eldegard, Reidun Fagerheim; Mangerud, Jan; Ólafsdóttir, Sædis; Regnéll, Carl; Svendsen, John Inge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Based on radiocarbon dating, a tephra horizon, varve counts and palaeomagnetism, detailed age models covering the last ~24 k cal a bp, have been developed for the stratigraphy in the lakes Bolshoye Shchuchye and Maloye ...
    • Late Quaternary dynamics of Arctic biota from ancient environmental genomics 

      Wang, Yucheng; Pedersen, Mikkel W.; Alsos, Inger Greve; De Sanctis, Bianca; Racimo, Fernando; Prohaska, Ana; Coissac, Eric; Owens, Hannah L.; Merkel, Marie Føreid; Fernandez-Guerra, Antonio; Rouillard, Alexandra; Lammers, Youri; Alberti, Adriana; Denoeud, France; Money, Daniel; Ruter, Anthony H.; McColl, Hugh; Larsen, Nicolaj K.; Cherezova, Anna A.; Edwards, Mary E.; Fedorov, Grigory B.; Haile, James; Orlando, Ludovic; Vinner, Lasse; Korneliussen, Thorfinn S.; Beilman, David W.; Bjørk, Anders A.; Cao, Jialu; Dockter, Christoph; Esdale, Julie; Gusarova, Galina; Kjeldsen, Kristian K.; Mangerud, Jan; Rasic, Jeffrey T.; Skadhauge, Birgitte; Svendsen, John Inge; Tikhonov, Alexei N.; Wincker, Patrick; Xing, Yingchun; Zhang, Yubin; Froese, Duane G.; Rahbek, Carsten; Nogues, David B; Holden, Philip B.; Edwards, Neil R.; Durbin, Richard; Meltzer, David J.; Kjær, Kurt H.; Moller, Per; Willerslev, Eske (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      During the last glacial–interglacial cycle, Arctic biotas experienced substantial climatic changes, yet the nature, extent and rate of their responses are not fully understood1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Here we report a large-scale ...
    • A new global ice sheet reconstruction for the past 80 000 years 

      Gowan, Evan J.; Zhang, Xu; Khosravi, Sara; Rovere, Alessio; Stocchi, Paolo; Hughes, Anna L.C.; Gyllencreutz, Richard; Mangerud, Jan; Svendsen, John Inge; Lohmann, Gerrit (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The evolution of past global ice sheets is highly uncertain. One example is the missing ice problem during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, 26 000-19 000 years before present) – an apparent 8-28 m discrepancy between far-field ...
    • The Scandinavian Ice Sheet as a barrier for Human colonization of Norway 

      Mangerud, Jan; Svendsen, John Inge (UBAS – Universitetet i Bergen Arkeologiske Skrifter;12, Chapter; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Several times during the Last Ice Age, the ice sheet covered only mountain areas so that it theoretically was possible for humans to colonize coastal areas of Norway. The last time this happened prior to the Last Glacial ...
