Dating of the Narssarssuaq stade in southern Greenland

Bennike, Ole and Sparrenbom, Charlotte LU (2007) In The Holocene 17(2). p.279-282
Abstract
Following the Holocene thermal maximum, the Greenland ice sheet began to expand, and many local glaciers formed. The maximum extent of most outlet glaciers from the Inland Ice was reached around 100 to 200 years ago. However, some exceptions have been recorded. In southern Greenland, the Neoglacial Narssarssuaq stade marks an older re-advance that exceeded the historical advance. The dating of the Narssarssuaq stade has been much debated. Here we present new radiocarbon dates from a sediment core collected from a small lake within the moraines formed during this stade. A minimum age for the Narssarssuaq stade of around 1200 yr BP is suggested from the dates.
