Sample text

Hence, the present thicknesses of annual layers in the ice core can only be interpreted in terms of past accumulation rates at -46 - Ice divide Bedrock Fig. 2. Cross section perpendicular to the ice divide of an idealized ice sheet resting upon a plane horizontal bedrock. The thickness of the ice is exaggerated by two orders of magnitude relative to the horizontal dimension. The arrows show internal ice flow lines. The thin, horizontal lines symbolize annual layers that are stretched and therefore get thinner, as they sink into the ice sheet.

1 Material and methods The last deglaciation is represented by a large number of geological deposits both marine and continental in origin. In contrast to deposits more than IOU 000 years old, these sediments can be directly dated using the carbon-14 method provided that they contain sufficient carbon. Although this makes it easier to correlate continental samples found a great distance apart, those marine cores which contain sufficient sediment to show the details of climatic transition are low in fossils because these sediments essentially comprise the accumulation of erosion products from the continent.

In general, it should be kept in mind that the isotopic composition of a given ice core increment may give a hint as to the climatic conditions that prevailed during the relatively short periods of snowfall when the material was deposited, but it tells nothing about the much longer periods of dry weather conditions inbetween.
