Special Publication 111.

Focuses on ice sheet/ocean interactions, on oceanic climate change during the last deglaciation period and on the high temporal resolution that can be obtained from sediment records at continental margin sites. Includes papers from the northeastern North American continental margin, East Greenland margin, the margins of northwest Europe, the northwest European Arctic and the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans. Many of the papers present high-resolution stratigraphic data, supported by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) radiocarbon dates, which demonstrate the advantages of continental margin records in resolving the palaeoceanography of the North Atlantic Ocean and in regional reconstructions of climate change.

Palaeoceanography of North Atlantic margins: an introduction • Late glacial foraminifera • Canadian North Atlantic margins • Abrupt changes in marine conditions, Sunneshine Fiord, eastern Baffin Island, N. W. T. during the last deglacial transition (Younger Dryas and H-0 events) • Shelf erosion and glacial ice proximity in the Labrador Sea during and after Heinrich events (H-3 or 4 to H-0) as shown by foraminifera • Palaeoceanographic information derived from acoustic surveys of glaciated continental margins: examples from eastern Canada • Deglaciation of the inner Scotian Shelf, Nova Scotia: correlation of terrestrial and marine glacial events • Rock (mineral)-magnetic properties of post-glacial (16-0.5ka) sediments from the Emerald Basin (Scotian Shelf), Canada • Arctic Ocean, East Greenland margin and northeastern North Atlantic • Deep-sea ostracode shell chemistry (Mg : Ca ratios) and Late Quaternary Arctic ocean history • Late Quaternary glacial history and short-term ice-rafted debris fluctuations along the East Greenland continental margin • Late Quaternary sedimentation along a fjord to shelf (trough) transect, East Greenland (c. 68° N) • North Atlantic sea surface conditions during the Younger Dryas cold event • Late glacial - Holocene sea surface temperatures and gradients between the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea: implications for the Nordic heat pump • Northwestern European and European Arctic margins • Late glacial sedimentology, foraminifera and stable isotope stratigraphy of the Hebridean continental shelf, northwest Scotland • Marine molluscan proxy data applied to Scottish late glacial and Flandrian sites: strengths and limitations • Late glacial sea level and ocean margin environmental changes interpreted from biostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic studies of isolation basins in northwest Scotland • Late Weichselian environmental changes of the southern Kattegat, Scandinavia, inferred from diatom records • Sedimentological examination of the Late Weichselian sea-level history following deglaciation of northern Denmark • Palaeoceanography on the European arctic margin during the last deglaciation • Deglaciation history and palaeoceanography of the western Spitsbergen margin since the last glacial maximum • Late glacial air temperature, oceanographic and ice sheet interactions in the southern Barents Sea region • Post-glacial environments of the southeastern Barents Sea: foraminiferal evidence • Late Weichselian deglaciation of the Barents Sea and low salinity events in the Norwegian Sea • Related topics • Palynology as a tool for land-sea correlation: an example from the eastern Mediterranean region • Earth rotation, ocean circulation and palaeoclimate: the North Atlantic - European example
