      This monograph reviews the nature of Quaternary environmental changes over the largest continent in the Southern Hemisphere. Moreover, since South America makes a transect across most climatic belts of an entire hemisphere, it provides a unique opportunity to examine the impact of changing Quaternary climates on a variety of by: Book Description. Ice Age Earth provides the first detailed review of global environmental change in the Late Quaternary. Significant geological and climatic events are analysed within a review of glacial and periglacial history. The melting history of the last ice sheets reveals that complex, dynamic and catastrophic change occurred, change which affected the circulation of the .

Quaternary geology The Earth's youngest period, the Quaternary, includes the last 2–3 million years and is characterized by several glaciations and warmer interglacial intervals. The cause of the climatic changes is probably to be found in the Earth's orbital parameters, which result in lower summer insolation in the northern hemisphere.

Sweden is part of the Fennoscandian Shield, an area of old crystalline and metamorphic rocks, consolidated during hundreds of millions of years.

Common rocks are gneiss, granite, granodiorite, sandstone and marble. The overburden is mainly formed by numerous periods of glaciation and deglaciation.

The most common soil type is till, covering about 75 % of the. During the Quaternary Period, Scandinavia's mountains were the source for repeated glaciation that covered much of eastern, central and western Europe.

With a particular emphasis on Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, this text describes how these glaciations, and their intervening warmer stages, affected Scandinavia Format: Paperback.

There are few investigations made of the Quaternary deposits in the North-Western Baltic Proper. However, Fromm () described the bottom morphology and the Geological Survey of Sweden has investigated the area around the island of Gotska Sand6n (Kjellin et al., ; Elhammer et al., ; Axberg et al., ).Cited by: 1.

The bedrock of Sweden consists of three main components: Precambrian crystalline rocks, the remains of a younger sedimentary rock cover and the Caledonides.

The Precambrian rocks are part of a stable rock area known as the Baltic Shield (or Fennoscandian Shield). Quaternary Geochronology is an international journal devoted to the publication of the highest-quality, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of dating methods applicable to the Quaternary Period - the last million years of Earth history.

Reliable ages are fundamental to place changes in climates, landscapes, flora and fauna - including the evolution and ecological. The Baltic Sea basin experienced several glaciation events related to the major climatic shifts during the Last Glacial Period.
