    Description: This detailed study contributes towards an improved understanding of the constraints placed on the streaming of ice from M’Clintock Channel and the resulting draw-down and destabilization of the NW sector of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. Emerging foraminiferal, diatom, and biogeochemical data provide valuable insights into the deglacial and postglacial history of the western Northwest Passage.
