Summary
Abstract: A detailed assessment of the history of local ice dome and outlet glacier fluctuations in the Rennick Glacier area of north Victoria Land, which contains a record of global climate driven outlet glacier fluctuations, was undertaken to establish the extent and dynamics of late Cenozoic Antarctic ice sheet fluctuations in the region. In the lower Rennick Glacier area, moraines and ice eroded ... View entire text
