Etymology. The word is formed from two words. Holos is the Greek word for "whole." "Cene" comes from the Greek word kainos, meaning "new."The concept is that this epoch is "entirely new." The suffix '-cene' is used for all the seven epochs of the Cenozoic Era.. Overview. It is accepted by the International Commission on Stratigraphy that the Holocene started . Predicting the response of the Greenland Ice Sheet to future climate change presents a major challenge to climate science. Paleoclimate data from Greenland can provide empirical constraints on past cryospheric responses to climate change, complementing insights from contemporary observations and from modeling.

Pre-Holocene by: The Patorfík aminozone is probably of mid- or early Quaternary age (– ka).Correlation with the few previously known pre-Holocene marine deposits of western Greenland Quaternary that only pre-Holocene period of extensive glaciation can be recognized during the Weichsel (Wisconsin) by: The book draws on examples from every continent, including Antarctica, and features a superb range of maps and illustrations.
The time span covered includes relevant events during the Tertiary which set the stage for the Quaternary glaciations and associated changes in climate, vegetation, and prehistoric human development. 1) point to a minimum deglaciation time of the area between AE and AE 14 C ka BP ( AE and AE cal ka BP, respectively).
The Patorfík aminozone is probably of mid- or early Quaternary age (– ka).Correlation with the few previously known pre-Holocene marine deposits of western Greenland. The onset of the Quaternary ( Ma) corresponds to significant paleo-environmental events, such as the intensification and southward extension of Northern Hemisphere glaciation.
In the North Sea Basin a significant late Cenozoic succession has been identified as a high-resolution archive of paleo-environmental changes during the Pliocene and Pleistocene.

Information from river sections in the Hudson Bay lowland indicates that two pre-Holocene nonglacial episodes separated by glacial advances postdate the oldest recognized glaciation.
Amino-acid data from in situ and transported marine shell fragments provide relative ages for glacial and nonglacial intervals. Absolute ages for non-glacial.

The late Quaternary ice rafted detritus (IRD) events in the Chukchi Basin, western Arctic Ocean are indications of the provenance of the coarser detritus and ice export events, and also document the evolutionary histories of Beaufort Gyre and the North American Ice Sheet (NAIS).
