This meeting examined high frequency climate changes reflected in the geological record, and the pacings of change and their geological consequences, during the Holocene - the p years. Despite the general stability of the Holocene climate, there have been distinct cool/dry events, for example at , , , and years ago and in the Little Ice Age between roughly .

    The Holocene spans years since the end of the last Ice Age and has been a period of major global environmental change. However the rate of change has accelerated during the last hundred years, due largely to human impacts and this has led to a growing concern for the future of our environmental : John Birks, Rick Battarbee, Anson Mackay.

Lemmen and R. E. Vance, pp. Geological Survey of Canada Bulletin A lacustrine record from a small lake, Lille Sneha Sø, in the Skallingen area indicates that the region was deglaciated in the early Holocene, prior to cal. a BP. Deglaciation was probably triggered by high temperatures, but it took more than years for the lake and the catchment to stabilize.

Understanding of the spatial patterns of the Holocene climate change is essential to comprehending the natural climate variability and the controlling mechanisms. It is thus also essential to enhancing the ability to predict future climate change and to evaluate the impacts brought by humans to the earth system (Ruddiman, ).

Edited by D.S. Lemmen and R.E. Palliser’s Triangle, the most arid portion of the Great Plains of western Canada, contains many playa lake basins. Because of the great diversity in basin types, brine chemistries, and depositional processes, the sediments in these lakes offer a tremendous opportunity to examine past hydrological and environmental conditions and changes in the region.

The last glacial maximum (Ice Age) ended about 15 thousand years ago. The most recent glacial retreat is still going on. We call the current period of glacial retreat the Holocene epoch and it continues until present.

This page discusses the climate changes within the Holocene Epoch or the current interglacial. Holocene environment and biota. In formerly glaciated regions, the Holocene has been a time for the reinstitution of ordinary processes of subaerial erosion and progressive reoccupation by a flora and fauna.

The latter expanded rapidly into what was an ecological vacuum, although with a very restricted range of organisms, because the climates were initially cold and the soil was still immature.
