University Of Cincinnati Geologist Finds North American Glacial Advances Coincide With Iceberg Calving Events

Summary:
Between 30,000 and 10,000 years ago, the Laurentide Ice Sheet surged over the North American continent numerous times. During that same time period, there were repeated episodes of massive iceberg calving over the North Atlantic, and ice cores from Greenland demonstrate repeated cycles of global warming and cooling. University of Cincinnati geologist Thomas Lowell provides one piece of the puzzle by reporting that the ice sheet advances over land marched in step with the iceberg calving events over the ocean.

Cincinnati (Oct. 26, 1998) -- Three big events. One big question: How do the major events of the last Ice Ages fit together?
