• Atmospheric circulation over Europe during the Younger Dryas 

      Rea, B.R.; Pellitero, R.; Spagnolo, M.; Hughes, P.D.; Ivy-Ochs, S.; Renssen, Hans; Ribolini, A.; Bakke, Jostein; Lukas, S.; Braithwaite, R.J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The Younger Dryas (YD) was a period of rapid climate cooling that occurred at the end of the last glaciation. Here, we present the first palaeoglacier-derived reconstruction of YD precipitation across Europe, determined ...
    • Earthquakes track subduction fluids from slab source to mantle wedge sink 

      Halpaap, Felix; Rondenay, Stéphane; Perrin, Alexander; Goes, Saskia; Ottemöller, Lars; Austrheim, Håkon; Shaw, Robert; Eeken, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Subducting plates release fluids as they plunge into Earth’s mantle and occasionally rupture to produce intraslab earthquakes. It is debated whether fluids and earthquakes are directly related. By combining seismic ...
    • Lake sediments with Azorean tephra reveal ice-free conditions on coastal northwest Spitsbergen during the Last Glacial Maximum 

      Bilt, Willem van der; Lane, Christine S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-10-23)
      Lake sediments retrieved from the beds of former nonerosive ice sheets offer unique possibilities to constrain changes in the extent and style of past glaciation, and place them in an absolutely dated context. We present ...
