Quantifying the erosional impact of the Fennoscandian ice sheet in the Tornetrusk-Narvik corridor, northern Sweden, based on cosmogenic radionuclide data

Description

Despite spectacular landform evidence of a dominant role for glacial action in shaping landscapes under former northern hemisphere ice sheets, there is little quantitative evidence for rates and patterns of erosion associated with specific glaciations. Here we use cosmogenic nuclide data to assess rates of subglacial erosion underneath the Fennoscandian ice sheet. By testing whether there are remnant nuclide concentrations in samples taken from sites that include both relict areas and features...[Show more]
