Timing of the Last Glacial Maximum from observed sea-level minima

Yokoyama, Yusuke; De Deckker, Patrick; Johnston, Paul; Fifield, L Keith; Lambeck, Kurt


During the Last Glacial Maximum, ice sheets covered large areas in northern latitudes and global temperatures were significantly lower than today. But few direct estimates exist of the volume of the ice sheets, or the timing and rates of change during their advance and retreat. Here we analyse four distinct sediment facies in the shallow, tectonically stable Bonaparte Gulf, Australia - each of which is characteristic of a distinct range in sea level - to estimate the maximum volume of...[Show more]
