Exposure Dating and Glacial Reconstruction at Mt. Field, Tasmania, Australia, Identifies MIS 3 and MIS 2 Glacial Advances and Climatic Variability

Mackintosh, A N; Barrows, Timothy; Colhoun, E.A.; Fifield, L Keith


Tasmania is important for understanding Quaternary climatic change because it is one of only three areas that experienced extensive mid-latitude Southern Hemisphere glaciation and it lies in a dominantly oceanic environment at a great distance from Northern Hemisphere ice sheet feedbacks. We applied exposure dating using 36Cl to an extensive sequence of moraines from the last glacial at Mt. Field, Tasmania. Glaciers advanced at 41-44 ka during Marine oxygen Isotope Stage (MIS) 3 and at 18 ka...[Show more]
