Summary
Abstract: Greenland ice-core records provide an exceptionally clear picture of many
aspects of abrupt climate changes, and particularly of those associated with
the Younger Dryas event, as reviewed here. Well-preserved annual layers can be
counted confidently, with only 1% errors for the age of the end of the Younger
Dryas 11,500 years before present. Ice-flow corrections allow reconstruction
of snow ... View entire text
