Description

Pulses of ice-sheet meltwater into the world ocean during the last deglaciation are of great current interest, because these large-scale events offer important test-beds for numerical models of the responses of ocean circulation and climate to meltwater addition. The largest such event has become known as meltwater pulse (mwp) 1a, with estimates of about 20. m of sea-level rise in about 500. years. A second meltwater pulse (mwp-1b) has been inferred from some sea-level records, but its...[Show more]
