Cosmogenic nuclide age data from James Ross Island, northeast Antarctic Peninsula
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/00668

Summary

Abstract:
Cosmogenic isotope exposure-age dating (Aluminium-26, Beryllium-10 and Chlorine-36) of granite erratic boulders and locally derived glacially transported basalt boulders from ice-free land on James Ross Island, northeastern Antarctic Peninsula. These data are used to define the evolution of Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) ice in the adjacent Prince Gustav region and the timing and duration of deglacial ice-streaming events.
