Abstract

The pattern and timing of the last deglaciation of Iceland is critically reviewed and discussed. The interpretations of the glacial history are controversial, but new data suggest a relatively late deglaciation, with larger glaciers during the Younger Dryas and Preboreal periods than earlier assumed. Interpretations of the early Holocene environmental development are hampered by a scarcity of data and poor resolution in the biostratigraphical and chronostratigraphical records. -from Author
