Late-glacial, fine-resolution pollen and sediment analyses of Little Dyke Lake sediments, Central Nova Scotia.

Monique G. Frappier
A detailed analyses of Little Dyke Lake basal sediments revealed two environmental disturbances occurred during the late-glacial. These disturbances were correlated to the previously reported Killarney and Younger Dryas climatic oscillations of the Maritimes. Organic accumulation commenced at about 11 500 yrs BP. Macrofossil and pollen evidence indicate that a forest-tundra including abundant juniper and spruce krummholz had developed 300-600 years after deglaciation. Changes in the vegetation composition were followed by an increased inwash of...
