When did Mexico have glaciers?
« on: 16/03/2014 01:30:02 »
OSCAR NOE asked the Naked Scientists:
   
When did Mexico have glaciers?

I have travelled to many places where you can find all the evidence of glaciers like: moreins, big scratched rocks, small lakes and carved mountains, and I have been in rivers with giant watered eroded rocks that were clearly washed down by enormous defreezing rivers that no longer exists. Do you have some information?

Thank you, I love your show.

What do you think?

It doesn't appear the most recent glacial boundary got as far South as Mexico,
but Mexico could have had Alpine glaciers during the Last Glacial Maximum

Alpine glaciers like Switzerland has now, (but not for much longer ) ...
