Previous dating of this moraine indicated that it formed during the Younger Dryas Stadial along the southern margin of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet in southern Finland. Our new exposure ages range from Our results confirm four previous Be ages obtained 40 km northeast of our sample location. These results identify the Ss I Moraine as among the best-dated margins associated with Late Quaternary ice sheets. C Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

How Do Scientists Date Historical Glacial Retreats?
A Dartmouth-led team has found a more accurate method to determine the ages of boulders deposited by tropical glaciers, findings that will likely influence previous research of how climate change has impacted ice masses around the equator. Scientists use a variety of dating methods to determine the ages of glacial moraines around the world, from the poles where glaciers are at sea level to the tropics where glaciers are high in the mountains.
Moraines are sedimentary deposits that mark the past extents of glaciers. Since glaciers respond sensitively to climate, especially at high latitudes and high altitudes, the timing of glacial fluctuations marked by moraines can help scientists to better understand past climatic variations and how glaciers may respond to future changes. In the tropics, glacial scientists commonly use beryllium surface exposure dating. Beryllium is an isotope of beryllium produced when cosmic rays strike bedrock that is exposed to air.

Calgary businessman John Torode is facing impaired driving charges in connection with a June crash on Highway 2 south of the city that sent three people to hospital. Actor Chadwick Boseman, who played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding fame as the regal Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe, died Friday of cancer, his representative said.

Cirque moraine records from the western United States have historically been interpreted as a resurgence of alpine glaciation in the middle-to-late Holocene i. Here we present 10 Be ages on 19 moraines deposited by 14 cirque glaciers across this region that have been interpreted as recording these Neoglacial advances.

The glacier evolution from two valleys located near Vicdessos, French Pyrenees, is deciphered from 17 in situ cosmic ray exposure CRE dating. In the Picot valley, Late Glacial glacier advances were documented during Heinrich Stadial 1 HS1 , while a rock glacier developed or was reactivated during the mid-Holocene. At least two moraines formed during the early Holocene were dated, while an undated moraine located close to the head of the catchment may have been formed either during the Late Holocene or the Little Ice Age.
A mass balance model suggests that a temperature about 5. A temperature about 3. In the Picot catchment whose summit is below the current regional ELA, the absence of YD and Late Holocene moraines is consistent with the general low-altitude deglaciation trend documented in the northern and southern slope of the Pyrenees, but differs from high-altitude Pyrenean and Alpine records.
