Summary
Abstract: Due to the continued uplift of the coastline as a response to the retreat of the last glacial maximum ice sheet, beaches are raised above the level of wave and ice push activity and are essentially fossil features which provide high resolution records of Holocene environmental changes along the Ross Sea sector of the Antarctic margin. Subsurface imaging of the sediments that make up raised ... View entire text
