      As the snow gets deeper and deeper, the lower portion turns to ice and its incredible weight makes the ice sheet flow across the land. Geological Society of America Bulletin, 7— However, wolves, caribou, muskoxen, moose and other animals survived. Google Scholar Parkhill, M. Boulton, G.

      Palaeo-glaciology of the last British-Irish Ice Sheet: challenges and some recent developments. This rate of sea level rise is similar to that being seen along coastlines today according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, suggesting that further analysis of past ice sheets and their regional climate may be helpful in understanding future ice retreat. Quaternary Research, 27, — Glaciers located near coasts such as those in New Zealand are especially responsive to climate change and serve as an indicator of local climate change. New York: Wiley, pp. How does the Earth recover after an Ice Age?

      Points of Interest For the last two million years or so, large parts of the northern hemisphere, all of Antarctica and many mountain chains on other continents have been covered and recovered by ice sheets. Earth and Planetary Science Letters,13 — Carlson, A. Most Read.

Retreat rates are calculated simply as distance divided by time. Paleoclimate researchers study past climates in hopes of developing a better understanding of our current and future climates.

There was a lot of movement over time, and there were about 20 cycles when the glaciers would advance and retreat as they thawed and refroze. Google Scholar Parkhill, M. Radiocarbon and surface exposure dating have been used over much of Canada and the United States to determine when ice left the region.

The western and central portions of the Laurentide seemed to disappear much faster than the eastern sector. Crocodiles, lizards, turtles, pythons and other reptiles also thrived during this period.

We may be closer to new continental ice sheets than we think. Miller was conducting research on Baffin Island in when he realized the ice cap had shrunk noticeably as compared to images from a few decades earlier.

A new picture of the last ice age

Such periods are known as ice ages. Carlson, A. The lake resulted from retreating glaciers. The reason for this variation is gravity. What would it take for these small ice fields to join and grow into a glacier covering Labrador and Quebec?

Quaternary Science Reviews, 16 9 Another area that has experienced deglaciation during the Holocene is the Spitsbergen island within Svalbard archipelago in Norway. The picture below was taken in July along the south coast of Labrador. Soil and rocks were scooped off the Canadian Shield and deposited over southern parts such as Toronto.

While close to the melting ice sheet, sea level Retreat of the last ice-sheet in eastern Canada book actually fall because there is no longer a strong gravitational attraction towards the former ice sheet, Retreat of the last ice-sheet in eastern Canada book this cancels out the increase in sea level due to the addition of meltwater Figure 5.

Google Scholar Belknap, D. The sum of these climate forcings combined to produce a surface warming 8, years ago that is broadly similar to that expected by A. We have to be similarly devious to work out how quickly our remaining ice sheets are melting.Glacial Cape Cod.

The geologic history of Cape Cod mostly involves the advance and retreat of the last continental ice sheet (named the Laurentide after the Laurentian region of Canada where it first formed) and the rise in sea level that followed the retreat of the ice sheet.
