The Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) was the largest of the former Northern Hemisphere ice sheets and had a significant effect on climate and sea level during the last glaciation (Clark et al. ).Over the area of North America that was glaciated by the LIS, ice sheet retreat caused 1) a weakening of high pressure centered over the ice sheet and attendant changes in atmospheric circulation, 2 Cited by:

    This paper presents a comprehensive review and synthesis of ice streams in the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) based on a new mapping inventory that includes previously hypothesised ice streams and includes a concerted effort to search for others from across the entire ice sheet bed. The inventory includes ice streams, which have been identified based on a variety of evidence including their. The Laurentide Ice Sheet is that part of the North American ice sheet complex that was centered on the Canadian (Laurentian) Shield during Quaternary glaciations. Its configuration and history are fairly well known only for the Wisconsinan (last) Glaciation, and are known in outline only for preceding glaciations.

    In North America, the last (Laurentide) Ice Sheet retreated from much of the Canadian Shield by ‘zonal stagnation’. Masses of dead ice, severed from the main ice sheet by emerging bedrock highs, downwasted in situ within valleys and lake basins and were commonly buried by sediment.

Modeling the Laurentide Ice Sheet through the last deglaciation by Joseph M. Licciardi Download PDF EPUB FB2

The climate/temperature function is used to drive a glaciological model of the Laurentide ice sheet through the last glacial cycle.

It suggests that the Whiteshell site was glaciated at about 60ka and during the glacial maximum, between about ka and 11ka, which is compatible with geological evidence from the region.

Deglaciation of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the Last Glacial Maximum. Abstract. The last deglaciation of the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) was associated with major reorganisations in the ocean-climate system and its retreat also represents a valuable analogue for understanding the rates and mechanisms of ice sheet by: Modeling the deglaciation of the Green Bay Lobe of the southern Laurentide Ice Sheet CORNELIA WINGUTH, DAVID M.

Each Modeling the Laurentide Ice Sheet through the last deglaciation book these sectors had a distinct glacial dynamic and was composed of multiple domes, satellite ice caps and ice divides. At its maximum extent, the laurentide ice-sheet was a system.

Here we assess the surface mass balance stability [9] of the Laurentide ice sheet—the largest glacial ice mass in the Northern Hemisphere—during the last deglaciation (24, to 9, years ago).

and ice sheet modeling allow for further testing of hypoth-eses on the relationship between MWPs, runoff routing, AMOC strength, and abrupt climate change.

Here we review the RSL records for the last deglaciation and the geologic data constraining potential ice sheet sources of sea level rise, focusing on periods of rapid sea level rise at 19 Cited by: The demise of the Laurentide ice sheet during the early Holocene epoch is the most recent and best constrained disappearance of a large ice sheet in the Northern Hemisphere, and thus allows an assessment of rates of ice-sheet decay as well as attendant contributions to sea level rise.

The different ice loading histories employed herein are: the ICE-3G model (Tushingham and Peltier, ), the ICE-4G model (Peltier, ), and the ICE-5G model (Peltier, ). In the Great Lakes region, the history of the Laurentide ice sheet distribution is very well documented and even short and local glaciation/deglaciation events have Cited by: Deglaciation describes the transition from full glacial conditions during ice ages, to warm interglacials, characterized by global warming and sea level rise due to change in continental ice volume.

Thus, it refers to the retreat of a glacier, an ice sheet or frozen surface layer, and the resulting exposure of the Earth's surface. The decline of the cryosphere due to ablation can occur on any. Here we assess the surface mass balance stability of the Laurentide ice sheet — the largest glacial ice mass in the Northern Hemisphere-during the last deglaciation (24, to 9, years ago).

We run a surface energy balance model with climate data from simulations with a fully coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model for key time. During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), confluent Laurentide, Innuitian and Greenland ice sheets completely blocked the CAA channels (Dyke et al.

Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) – refers to an Antarctic-size ice sheets that extended from the general area of the Great Lakes in the USA northward to the Canadian Arctic coast, and westward from the uplands and fjords of Baffin Island and Labrador to the foot of the Rocky Mountains (Figure 1).In the west, it was at times contiguous with the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, and in the NE merged with the.

The southern Laurentide Ice Sheet 3 Dyke et al. () summarize what is currently known about the extent and timing of the entire LIS during the last glacial maximum.

A major contribution to our understanding of regional aspects of the glacial record is the compilation of Quaternary geologic maps atscale for all of the area. The largest of these ice sheets was the Laurentide Ice Sheet (Figure 1), covering much of Canada and the northern United States with a mass of ice that was nearly 4 km thick in some places.

Af years ago, Earth started to warm, and the Laurentide Ice Sheet began to disappear. Here, we date the final retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet with 10 Be surface exposure ages for the Labrador Dome, the largest of the remnant Laurentide ice domes during the Holocene.

We show that the Labrador Dome deposited moraines during North Atlantic cold events at ∼ ka, ka and ka, suggesting that these regional climate Cited by: Start studying Geology Chapter Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

If. The Laurentide Ice Sheet was a massive sheet of ice that covered millions of square kilometers, including most of Canada and a large portion of the Northern United States, multiple times during the Quaternary glacial epochs, from ± million years ago to the present.

For the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and subse-quent deglaciation, the existence of large Northern Hemi-sphere ice sheets caused profound changes in surface to-pography and albedo. While ice-sheet extent is fairly well known, numerous conflicting reconstructions of ice-sheet to-pography suggest that precision in this boundary condition isFile Size: KB.The world was a drastically different place.

Major ice sheets many kilometers thick covered much of North America and Scandinavia. So much water was locked up in ice on the continents that sea level was more than m lower than today. The largest of these ice sheets was known as the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) (Figure 1).
