Abstract [en]

Beryllium isotopes ((9)Bc and Be-10) distribution in Holocene and late Pleistocene glacial ice and sediment facies from sub-ice stream and sub-ice shelf settings of the Ross sector of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) and from the open Ross Sea are presented, to assess the temporal and spatial variability of these tracers. Significant variation is detected (> one order of magnitude) among Holocene post-glacial deposits. Late Pleistocene diamictons from bathymetric lows in the Ross Sea show depleted concentrations that are less variable among sites and distinctly lower than bank deposits of similar age. In general, sub-ice shelf and ice stream sediments are the most depleted in Be-10. Be-10 with its longer half-life and different pathways compared apparant to C-14 is found to be a sensitive marker for evaluating the complex spatial and temporal relationships between texturally similar sediments formed by different depositional processes.
