The Gulf of Alaska GOA is a key location to study the climatic drivers of glacier fluctuations during the LIA because dendrochronological techniques can provide precise ages of ice advances and retreats. This is curious because reconstructions of paleoclimate in the GOA region indicate the 19th century was not the coldest period of the LIA.

Using newly available paleoclimate data, we hypothesize that a combination of moderately cool summers accompanying the Dalton Solar Minimum and exceptionally snowy winters associated with a strengthened Aleutian Low could have caused these relatively late LIA advances. These advances were partly a response to declining summer insolation over the last 8 ka of the Holocene Berger and Loutre, ; Solomina et al.
