Figure 1

(a) Køge Bugt, 1:600,000. Background imagery is a mosaic of Landsat 8 scenes65. The star marks the location of core ER1116. The 50 m ice sheet bed contour15 delineates the maximum area of the ice sheet bed that was below sea-level during the early-Holocene63. Køge Bugt bathymetric data were interpolated from new single-beam echo-soundings presented here. The inset map shows the extent of the main figure and a schematic of ocean surface circulation42,66. Inset map labels: NG–NGRIP ice core, KF–Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord, AF–Ammassalik Fjord, D3–Dye 3 ice core, EGC–East Greenland Current, EGCC–East Greenland Coastal Current, and IC–Irminger Current. (b) Bathymetric and topographic measurements in Køge Bugt. Data from aerogravity14 (black), ice-penetrating radar15,16 (purple), satellite altimetry67 (magenta), and echo-sounder measurements (orange) were extracted along the transect A–A′. The spatial extent of each dataset is shown in 1a. This figure was created using ArcMap 10.1, Microsoft Excel 2013, and Adobe Illustrator CS6.
