  • Li, S. H.; Wintle, Ann G.; Li, Bo; Zhao, H. (2007-09)
    The equivalent doses of K-feldspar grains in a range of grain sizes from 90 to View the MathML source diameter were measured using a single-aliquot regenerative-dose protocol for the infrared stimulated luminescence (IRSL) ...
  • Todd, Jonathan A.; Palmer, T. J. (2011-10-18)
    The Jurassic bivalve genus Placunopsis Morris and Lycett, 1853 is shown to be an anomiid on account of the detailed anatomy of its hither-to unknown right valve and the corresponding musculature in the left valve. Herein ...
  • Quincey, D. J.; Braun, M.; Glasser, Neil F.; Bishop, M. P.; Hewitt, K.; Luckman, A. (2011-09)
    We examine the surges of five glaciers in the Pakistan Karakoram using satellite remote sensing to investigate the dynamic nature of surges in this region and how they may be affected by climate. Surface velocity maps ...
  • Birch, P.; Gilbertson, D.; Grattan, John; Mattingly, David; Pyatt, Brian; Barker, Graeme (1999-07)
    Copper mining and smelting were important activities in various predesert wadis during the Iron Age, Nabatean, Roman, and Byzantine periods in southern Jordan and major spoil tips to gether with slag heaps remain as a ...
  • Froese, Duane G.; Zazula, Grant D.; Westgate, John A.; Preece, Shari J.; Sanborn, Paul T.; Reyes, Alberto V.; Pearce, Nicholas J. G. (2009-08-01)
    The Klondike goldfields of Yukon, Canada, contain a key record of Pleistocene Beringia, the region of Alaska, Siberia, and Yukon that remained largely unglaciated during the late Cenozoic. A concentration of mining exposures, ...
  • Shimada, Masanobu; Paillou, Philippe; Lowry, John; Lucas, Richard M.; Hess, Laura; Rosenqvist, Ake; Chapman, Bruce (2011-06-14)
    The Kyoto & Carbon (K&C) Initiative is an international collaboration led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) that revolves primarily around the Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) Phased Arrayed L-band ...
  • Brewer, Paul A.; Lewin, J. (2002)
    Experimental abrasion of river-bed materials has been widely undertaken, producing downstream fining rates that generally are believed to be much less than those observed in the field. A conclusion commonly adopted has ...
  • Bearcock, Jenny M.; Perkins, William T.; Pearce, Nicholas J. G. (2011-06-15)
    Green rust, an Fe (II) and (III) oxyhydroxy salt, can alter the aqueous oxidation state, mobility and toxicity, of inorganic contaminants and thus could have applications in water treatment. This paper discusses a series ...
  • Davies, Sarah J.; Metcalfe, S. E.; Chacon, A.; Bernal-Brooks, F.; Farmer, John G; MacKenzie, Angus B; Newton, Anthony J (2005-08)
    We provide evidence of rapid, recent environmental change in two lakes in the highlands of central Mexico. Multiple sediment cores were obtained from Lago de Zirahuén (Michoacán) and Laguna de Juanacatlán (Jalisco). Analysis ...
  • MICHNOWICZ, Sabina A.K. (2011-07)
    The Lakigigar eruption 1783 – 1784 is known to be the largest air pollution incident in historic times; its effects were felt throughout Europe and beyond. In the UK, August temperatures in 1783 were 2.5oC to 3oC higher ...
  • Bennett, Matthew R.; Hambrey, Michael J.; Huddart, David; Glasser, Neil F.; Crawford, Kevin (1999-08)
    This paper describes the landform and sediment assemblage produced by a surge (in 1948) of the Kongsvegen/Kronebreen tidewater glacier complex in northwest Spitsbergen. The main geomorphological products of this advance ...
  • Coulthard, Tom J. (2001-01-01)
  • Merriman, Peter; Revill, George; Cresswell, Tim J.; Lorimer, Hayden; Matless, David; Rose, Gillian; Wylie, John (2008)
    This paper is an edited transcript of a panel discussion on 'Landscape, Mobility and Practice' which was held at the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) Annual Conference in September ...
  • Glasser, Neil F. (2002)
  • Hambrey, Michael J.; Smellie, John L.; Nelson, Anna E.; Johnson, Joanne S. (2008)
    The northern Antarctic Peninsula region has undergone ~10 m.y. of eruptive activity by basaltic volcanoes, mainly in subglacial settings. Spectacular exposures of lava-fed deltas, capped by basalt flows and commonly underlain ...
  • Hambrey, Michael J.; Barret, P. J.; Powell, R. D. (2011-09-12)
    Recent offshore drilling in the SW Ross Sea has recovered three cores with a cumulative thickness of 1500 in of Oligocene-early Miocene strata. Together with data from earlier drilling, notably from the CIROS-1 drillhole ...
  • Glasser, Neil F.; Harrison, Stephan; Aniya, M.; Winchester, Vanessa (2004-08)
    This paper presents the evidence for Late Pleistocene and Holocene palaeoclimate and glacier fluctuations of the two major icefields in Patagonia, the Hielo Patagónico Norte (47°00′S, 73°39′W) and the Hielo Patagónico Sur ...
  • Lezine, A. -. M.; Umer, M.; Bonnefille, R.; Lamb, Henry F. (2007-09)
    A sediment core recovered from Garba Guracha, a glacial lake at 3950 m altitude in the Bale Mountains of Ethiopia, at the boundary of the Ericaceous and Afroalpine vegetation belts, provides a 16,700-year pollen record of ...
  • Lamb, Henry F.; Bates, C. Richard; Marshall, Michael H.; Coombes, P. (Elsevier, 2007-02)
    High-resolution seismic data from Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile in northern Ethiopia, reveal a deep sedimentary sequence divided by four strong reflectors. Data from nearshore cores show that the uppermost strong ...
