The 14C Age of Palsas in Northern Eurasia

  • Yurij K. Vasil'Chuk (a1) and Alla C. Vasil'Chuk (a1)

Abstract

We discuss results of 14C dating peat of palsa of different regions of Northern Eurasia. We apply these dates to determine the age of active palsa growth during different periods of the Holocene in permafrost zone.
