Abstract (summary)
The new multi-proxy paleoenvironmental record recently reported from Lake BC01, on south-central Melville Island, western Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA), constitutes an important contribution to the regional literature (Peros et al., 2010). This continuous record, spanning the last ~12,000 cal yr BP, provides an important link between the late glacial and postglacial vegetation history, and related paleoclimatic conditions deciphered from them. Although we welcome these new perspectives, the summary of the late Quaternary glacial geology that the paper also addresses contains problematic interpretations of recently published regional revisions (England et al., 2006, 2009) that warrant clarification.
