Abstract

A series of cores from a 7-ha glacial kettle, 600m above sea level, provides information on the development of a Sphagnum peat bog and the late Quaternary vegetation and climate history of the south-central Adirondack Mountains, New York. Within the kettle, stratified drift that dates to about 11 000 yr Bp is overlain by varved glacial-lake sediment, gyttja and peat. Modern pollen analogs were identified for all of the fossil samples at Brandreth Bog, and the vegetation and climate associated with these modern analogs were used to interpret the vegetation and climate history near the site.-from Author
