[{"title":"Deglacial varve chronology for Sk\u00e5ne-Sm\u00e5land, Sweden","summary":"Varve thickness data from legacy and newly-acquired annually-laminated sediment archives in varve years on the local Sk\u00e5ne-Sm\u00e5land timescale, along with the details of the sediment sites.\r\n\r\nHere we have reanalysed legacy data and incorporated our own new terrestrial and offshore data to create a new chronology, the Sk\u00e5ne-Sm\u00e5land varve chronology. Using varve thickness data it is possible to estimate the regional retreat pattern and rate of the Fennoscandian ice sheet.\r\n\r\nThe data have been collected from southeastern Sweden (Sk\u00e5ne, Blekinge, Kalmarsund, \u00d6land and Sm\u00e5land); legacy data were collected between 1906\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a\u20601994, and new data were acquired both onshore and offshore between 2018\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a\u20602019. The data represent a time period approximately 15 thousand years before present.","citations":"Avery RS, Greenwood SL, Schenk F, Mor\u00e9n BM, Armstrong McKay DI, Brunnberg L, Barbara Wohlfarth (2020) A 725-year integrated marine-terrestrial varve chronology for southeastern Sweden suggests rapid ice retreat ~15 ka BP.
