14C and 18O in Siberian Syngenetic Ice-Wedge Complexes

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

Abstract

We discuss the possibility of dating ice wedges by the radiocarbon method. We show as an example the Seyaha, Kular and Zelyony Mys ice wedge complexes, and investigated various organic materials from permafrost sediments. We show that the reliability of dating 18O variations from ice wedges can be evaluated by comparison of different organic materials from host sediments in the ice wedge cross sections.
