Description
A sediment core retrieved from the deep part of glaciated Russkaya Gavan' Fjord (7612.25'N, 6229.19'E) on the northwestern coast of Novaya Zemlya, Barents Sea, was analyzed for lithology, grain size, coarse debris, organic carbon, foraminifera, macrobenthic remains and stable isotopes in foraminiferal tests, resulting in the production of a set of records that began at approximately AD 1170 in the midst of the Medieval Warm Period, which lasted until about AD 1400.
