Mid- and late-Holocene vegetation, surface weathering and glaciation, Fjallsjokull, southeast Iceland


, : Mid- and late-Holocene vegetation, surface weathering and glaciation, Fjallsjokull, southeast Iceland. Holocene 7(4): 457-471

A natural section at the southern margin of Fjallsjokull in southeastern Iceland provided evidence of a mid-Holocene land-surface that had been deformed by 'Little Ice Age' glaciation. Deformation was interpreted as compression around coarse gravel core and extension along deformable silts. Restoration of the original sedimentary units showed a succession of lake sediments and fan gravels, with pollen and wood macro-fossil remains preserved in the lake silts.
