A record of ice sheet demise
S. Marcott, J. Shakun
Geology, Medicine
Science

2017
TLDR
The Cordilleran ice sheet in western Canada melted sooner than previously thought and played a critical role in paleohuman migration from Asia to North America and potentially in past rapid climate events. Expand

Maximum extent and decay of the Laurentide Ice Sheet in Western Baffin Bay during the Last glacial episode
É. Brouard, P. Lajeunesse
Geology, MedicineScientific Reports
2017
TLDR
Marine geophysical evidence is presented that during the MIS-2 the LIS extended to the edge of the continental shelf, seaward of the previously proposed limits and subsequently retreated episodically westward during deglaciation, which supports interpretations of deep glacial ice grounding in Western Baffin Bay.
