Summary
Abstract: Late Pleistocene glaciation of the Australian mainland was restricted to a
small area of the southeastern highlands. Geomorphic mapping of the area and
exposure dating using the in situ produced cosmogenic isotope 10Be provides
evidence for at least two distinct glaciations. The Early Kosciuszko
glaciation consisted of a single glacier advance before 59,300 ± 5400 years
ago (Snowy River ... View entire text
