... ice-sheet retreat. Geomorphologic evidence shows that the LGM ice sheet expanded to form two ice domes in Palmer Land and merged with an expanded and thicker West Antarctic Ice Sheet in the Weddell Sea. Ice from the Antarctic Peninsula merged with Alexander Island ice in George VI Sound. Cosmogenic 10...

The associated change in subduction dynamics may have caused the dextral transtensional deformation observed in the George VI Sound region and initiated uplift of blueschist facies rocks now exposed on Smith Island. The calculated convergence history does not provide a simple explanation for the occurrence...
