LATE-GLACIAL AND EARLY HOLOCENE CLIMATIC FLUCTUATIONS IN WESTERN IRELAND IN RELATION TO MOVEMENTS OF THE OCEANIC POLAR FRONT IN THE EASTERN NORTH ATLANTIC

Objective



Multidisciplinary physical, chemical and biological investigations into Late-Glacial and early Holocene sediments in western Ireland will be carried out with a view to reconstructing environmental and climatic change during the period 14000 to 9000 B.P. Because of Ireland's proximity to the Atlantic, the results should provide further clarification of the changes already documented for this period in deep sea cores taken in the eastern North Atlantic. This will not only facilitate construction of accurate models of the principal palaeoclimatic factors affecting NW Europe at this time but will provide the type of evidence required by meteorologists seeking to predict long term future trends in climatic change in the North Atlantic basin and adjoining landmasses.
