Patagonian Ice Sheet Chronology

Paso Roballos, Argentina

What processes influence the extent and timing of major Quaternary fluctuations of the Patagonian Ice Sheet? This project is developing a detailed chronology of major glacier advances in Patagonia to investigate such processes using ice sheet models.

This project was initially funded through a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) studentship to A. Hein.

People involved in this project:

  • Dr. Andy Hein (Edinburgh)
  • Dr. Nick Hulton (Edinburgh)
  • Prof. Tibor Dunai (Cologne)
  • Prof. David Sugden (Edinburgh)
  • Dr. Andrea Coronato (CADIC-CONICET, Argentina)
  • Dr. Mike Kaplan (LDEO, Columbia University, New York)
  • Dr. Alun Hubbard (Aberystwyth)
