GSSPs are generally, but not always, based on paleontological changes.The proposed section for the Pleistocene is the North Greenland Ice Core Project ice core (75°06′N 42°18′W) (Svensson et al. The Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point for the start of the Pleistocene is in a reference section at Vrica, 4 kilometers south of Crotone in Calabria, southern Italy, a location whose exact dating has recently been confirmed by analysis of strontium and oxygen isotopes, as well as by planktonic foraminifera.
Deserts, on the other hand, were drier and more extensive.
The Pleistocene has been dated from 1.806 million (±5,000 years) to 11,550 years before present (Lourens et al.
2004), with the end date expressed in radiocarbon years as 10,000 Carbon-14 years BP.
In Eurasia, large lakes developed as a result of the runoff from the glaciers.
Rivers were larger, had a more copious flow, and were braided.
Scattered domes stretched across Siberia and the Arctic shelf. South of the ice sheets, large lakes accumulated due to blockage of outlets and decreased evaporation in the cooler air.
