• Late Holocene canyon-carving floods in northern Iceland were smaller than previously reported 

      Bilt, Willem Godert Maria van der; Barr, Iestyn D.; Berben, Sarah Miche Patricia; hennekam, rick; Lane, Timothy P.; Adamson, Kathryn; Bakke, Jostein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Catastrophic floods have formed deep bedrock canyons on Earth, but the relationship between peak discharge and bedrock erosion is not clearly understood. This hinders efforts to use geological evidence of these cataclysmic ...
    • Radiation damage allows identification of truly inherited zircon 

      Bjerga, Anders; Stubseid, Håvard Hallås; Pedersen, Leif-Erik Rydland; Pedersen, Rolf B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Many studies have reported U-Pb dates of zircon that are older than the igneous rocks that contain them, and they are therefore thought to be inherited from older rock complexes. Their presence has profound geodynamic ...
    • The role of ocean and atmospheric dynamics in the marine-based collapse of the last Eurasian Ice Sheet 

      Sejrup, Hans Petter; Hjelstuen, Berit Oline Blihovde; Patton, Henry; Esteves, Mariana; Winsborrow, Monica; Rasmussen, Tine Lander; Andreassen, Karin Marie; Hubbard, Alun Lloyd (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Information from former ice sheets may provide important context for understanding the response of today’s ice sheets to forcing mechanisms. Here we present a reconstruction of the last deglaciation of marine sectors of ...
    • Seasonal sea ice persisted through the Holocene Thermal Maximum at 80°N 

      Pieńkowski, Anna J.; Husum, Katrine; Belt, Simon T.; Ninnemann, Ulysses S; Köseoğlu, Denizcan; Divine, Dmitry V.; Smik, Lukas; Knies, Jochen; Hogan, Kelly; Noormets, Riko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The cryospheric response to climatic warming responsible for recent Arctic sea ice decline can be elucidated using marine geological archives which offer an important long-term perspective. The Holocene Thermal Maximum, ...
    • Substantial spatial variation in glacial erosion rates in the Dronning Maud Land Mountains, East Antarctica 

      Sirevaag, Hallgeir; Jacobs, Joachim; Ksienzyk, Anna Katharina (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The coast-parallel Dronning Maud Land (DML) mountains represent a key nucleation site for the protracted glaciation of Antarctica. Their evolution is therefore of special interest for understanding the formation and ...
