Additional Physical Format: Online version: Wisconsinan glaciations and deglaciations in southern Québec (Montréal Region). Ottawa, Ont.: National Research Council of Canada, The Wisconsin Glacial Episode, also called the Wisconsin glaciation, was the most recent glacial period of the North American ice sheet complex.

This advance included the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, which nucleated in the northern North American Cordillera; the Innuitian ice sheet, which extended across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago; the Greenland ice sheet; and the massive.

The Wisconsin glaciation (also known as the Devensian, Midlandian, Würm, and Weichsel glaciation in different areas around the world) was the last Ice Age, during which glaciers extended as far south as modern-day California, New York, France, Germany, and Poland.

This book is the second of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale.

This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers. In particular the need for accurate ice.

The complex topography of the region was the stage of many of the major deglacial events of southern Quebec (e.g. Goldthwait Sea Invasion, St Lawrence Ice. The Last Glacial Period (LGP) occurred from the end of the Eemian to the end of the Younger Dryas, encompassing the period c.

These prior glaciations followed very similar paths and patterns to the Late Wisconsinan, including ice flow direction and deposition patterns (Braun b, 11) Older glacial limits are primarily parallel to that of the Late Wisconsinan, and ice flowed over the region in the same general southwesterly direction each time.

The absence of igneous and metamorphic clasts of Canadian Shield origin in the Saskatchewan gravels and sands (preglacial) valley fills in seven active gravel pits studied over a 5 yr period, coupled with 29 radiocarbon dates (21, yr B.P.), suggest that Laurentide glaciation prior to the late Wisconsin did not reach the Edmonton by: Lennoxville Till of the Lac-Mégantic region is homogeneous with respect to fabric, texture, clay-mineral composition, and color.

The homogeneity resulted from erosion and transportation by a glacier that moved southeastward over bedrock that had little petrologic variation.

Wisconsinan glaciation that retains its original name, is the best documented (Williman and Frye, ; Hallberg, a; Aber, ). The MIS 6 Lake Michigan lobe reached farther south than any other glaciation in southern Illinois (Williman and Frye, ), but farther west along the ice margin, the Illinoian ice was much less extensive than File Size: KB.

The physical landscape and surface geology of the Chicago area are the legacy of the most recent of several continental glaciations. Although glaciers invaded the Chicago area repeatedly during the Quaternary period, the span of geologic time from about million years ago to the present, the youngest, the Wisconsin-episode glacier, melted back into the Lake Michigan.

This paper is the first detailed reconstruction of the Late Wisconsinan glacial history of southern Eureka Sound, Queen Elizabeth Islands, Arctic Canada (Fig. 1, Fig. 2).Blake () originally proposed the existence of a Late Wisconsinan Innuitian Ice Sheet in this region based mainly on a corridor of maximum Holocene emergence extending from Eureka Sound to Bathurst by: A composite thickness of about 25 m of sediment has been cored from the Verrill Canyon on the Scotian Slope.

remnants of early glaciations tend to be obliterated and mostly removed by later, more extensive advances. Especially in mountain regions, the preservation potential of older sequences rapidly diminishes with time and subsequent glaciation.

The general absence of sound geochronometric frame­ works for potential Sangamonian or Early Wisconsinan glacial deposits has led to a situation where in most areas it can be argued. Nova Scotia was affected by at least four ice advances f to 10, years ago (called the Wisconsinan Glacial Stage).

The Sangamonian Interglacial which was fromto 75, years ago was a time when the climate was as warm or warmer than today.

Forests grew in Nova Scotia at this time and their remains can be found buried under. Pre-Wisconsinan events are questionable since older deposits are more weathered, more difficult to date and in many places have been eroded.

The advent of Carbon 14 dating allowed scientists to date wood, charcoal, bone and calcareous shells back to 80, years, thus placing age constraints on the stratigraphic record. glaciations as they are usually called.
