Large-scale glaciation and deglaciation of Antarctica during the Late Eocene: Comment.

Geology, 40(3):e253-e254.

Peters et al. (2010) present a hypothesis for a late Eocene glaciation, by interpreting an incision surface at Wadi Al-Hitan (Egypt) as indicating a 40+ m fall in eustatic sea levels. We argue that there is no evidence for a major fall in sea level, and that their calibration of the event is unproven.
