High deglaciation rates in Denmark during the Late Weichselian. Implications for the palaeoenvironment

Description :
This paper concentrates on Late Weichselian deglaciation rates and the different mechanisms that might have caused the rather rapid collapse of the Danish sector of the Weichselian ice sheet. The analysis will be attempted by applying the improved possibility of obtaining numeric 3D-reconstructions on the surface form of former ice sheets, given their former margins and the physical character of the substratum. Also results obtained from insolation calculations as well as empirical knowledge on ablation rates from modern glacier surfaces obtained from proper mass balance measurements will be used.
