  • The dataset comprises of compilations of new and published age data constraining glacier advance, retreat and aquatic moss layers in lakes from the South Shetland Islands. The data were used in data analysis in the following manuscripts to constrain deglaciation and glacier dynamics on Potter Peninsula and Fildes Peninsula, King George Island South Shetland Islands: Heredia Barion P, Roberts SJ, Spiegel C, Binnie SA, Wacker L, Davies J, et al. (submitted - a) Mid-late Holocene deglaciation and glacier readvances on the Fildes Peninsula, King George Island, NW Antarctic Peninsula. The Holocene. Heredia Barion P, Strelin JA, Roberts SJ, Spiegel C, Wacker L, Niedermann S, et al. (submitted - b). Holocene deglaciation, glacial dynamics and the geomorphology of Potter Peninsula, King George Island (Isla 25 de Mayo), NW Antarctic Peninsula. Frontiers in Earth Science. Data collected in this study were funded by: Centro de Investigaciones en Ciencias de la Tierra (CICTERRA), the Direccion Nacional del Antartico/Instituto Antartico Argentino (DNA/IAA) in the framework of the Project PICTA, 2011 - 0102, IAA "Geomorfologia y Geologia Glaciar del Archipielago James Ross e Islas Shetland del Sur, Sector Norte de la Peninsula Antartica"; the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) research program Polar regions and Coasts in a changing Earth System (PACES II); IMCONet (FP7 IRSES, action no. 318718); the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC/BAS-CGS Grant no.81); the NERC/BAS science programmes CACHE-PEP: Natural climate variability - extending the Americas palaeoclimate transect through the Antarctic Peninsula to the pole and GRADES-QWAD: Quaternary West Antarctic Deglaciations.

  • The dataset comprises of proxy data from the Emerald Lake sediment record dating back to 12.1ka BP were extracted on Macquarie Island. Three independent methods to reconstruct past changes in Southern Hemisphere Westerly wind (SHW) intensity. Core scanning (ITRAX XRF) and multispectral data (SPECIM) originally published in Saunders et al. (2018) have been updated to the 2020 radiocarbon calibration curve. This research was funded by NERC Standard grant NE/K004514/1 (D.A.H., S.J.R., L.S.), Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione Postdoctoral Research Fellowship PZ00P2_136835/1 (K.M.S.), Swiss National Science Foundation Grant 200021_172586 (M.G.) and Australian Antarctic Science grants 3117 and 4156 (K.M.S.). K.M.S. was also supported by PhD funding as part of grant 2663 to A. McMinn, an Australian Postgraduate Award (2004-2008) and an Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering Postgraduate Research Award.

  • The dataset comprises of sedimentological, geochemical, biological and chronological data from a sediment core record extracted from Kiteschsee Lake sediment, Fildes Peninsula, King George Island, South Shetland Islands. We undertook multi-proxy analyses (diatom, grain size, geochemical and sedimentological) on a 77 cm-long sediment record extracted from the flat-bottomed eastern basin depocentre of Kiteschsee Lake and compared data obtained with published lake records from the Fildes Peninsula.
