New article in Nature Communications: "Fennoscandian freshwater control on Greenland hydroclimate shifts at the onset of the Younger Dryas" by Francesco Muschitiello (IGV) et al.


An international team of scientists, led by Swedish researchers from Stockholm University and in partnership with UK researchers from the Natural History Museum (NHM) London, and Plymouth University, has found evidence in the sediments of an ancient Swedish lake that it was the melting of the Scandinavian ice sheet that provides the missing link to what occurred at the end of the last Ice Age. The study, published in Nature Communications, examined moisture and temperature records for the region and compared these with climate model simulations.

Francesco Muschitiello, one of IGV's PhD researchers, is the lead author of the study.Sediments from an ancient Swedish lake provide information about the climate at the end of the last Ice Age.
