Description

Three types of data are available: 1) Radiocarbon, OSL, and cosmogenic ¹⁰Be and ²⁶Al exposure age data used to constrain the Fennoscandian deglaciation chronology (XLSX files). 2) Shapefiles and associated files for the deglaciation reconstruction isochrons marking every 1000 years from 22 to 13 cal kyr BP and every hundred years from 11.6 to 9.7 cal kyr BP. 3) Video showing deglaciation pattern and chronology for the Fennoscandian Ice Sheet. Ice margins are given at 1-kyr intervals from 22 to 13 cal kyr BP before an ice sheet-wide interruption in retreat during the Younger Dryas (12.7–11.6 cal kyr BP). Post-Younger Dryas margins (11.6–9.7 cal kyr BP) are shown at 100-year intervals (MP4 file).
