Abstrakt

Prior to the last deglaciation, probably in the Late Weichselian, glaciers draining the Inland Ice were present in Independence Fjord and Jorgen Bronlund Fjord, and a glacier draining an ice cap in the north was present in the Borglum Elv valley. It is proposed that glacier fronts were situated at the mouth of Jorgen Bronlund Fjord during a halt in the deglaciation 8000-9000 years BP, and that this halt led to a low initial rate of emergence. Jorgen Bronlund Fjord was deglaciated 8000-7600 years BP. The early Holocene marine limit is c.65 m above sea-level in the fjord, and c.80 m east of the fjord. -from Author Geological Museum, Oster Voldgade 5-7, DK-1350 Copenhagen K, Denmark.English
