In this sense, it could be argued that the continued use of the term LGM is becoming a hindrance, rather than a practical ‘shorthand term’ for referring to the maximum of the last glaciation. However, there are two points to consider. As already noted, the LGM has been taken to mean the maximum extent of glacial ice globally and has been used not only by glacial geologists across the world but also by many others who have taken it to be a time-marker for subdivision of the late Weichselian and its equivalents.
