The Atlas Mountains display evidence of extensive Pleistocene glaciations. The largest ice fields and valley glaciers formed in the Toubkal massif where multiple glacial advances are recorded. A limited number of preliminary 10Be analyses from the oldest moraines have yielded exposure ages as old as 76 ka, intermediate moraines have yielded an age of 24 ka, whilst the youngest Pleistocene moraines correlate the Younger Dryas (12.9-11.7ka). © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
