Constraints on the Late Saalian to early Middle Weichselian ice sheet of Eurasia from field data and rebound modelling

Purcell, Anthony; Funder, Svend; Kjaer, Kurt H.; Larsen, Eiliv; Muller, Per; Lambeck, Kurt

Description

Using glacial rebound models we have inverted observations of crustal rebound and shoreline locations to estimate the ice thickness for the major glaciations over northern Eurasia and to predict the palaeo-topography from late MIS-6 (the Late Saalian at c. 140 kyr BP) to MIS-4e (early Middle Weichselian at c. 64 kyr BP). During the Late Saalian, the ice extended across northern Europe and Russia with a broad dome centred from the Kara Sea to Karelia that reached a maximum thickness of c. 4500 m...[Show more]
