    Resumé

    The Hanklit cliff section is a classical glaciotectonic locality where an excellent cross-section through a thrust fault complex is exposed. The thrust imbrications were thrust from north to the south during a Late Weichselian glacier advance. Structures created by soft sedimentary deformation due to high water pressure occur in relation to the thrust fault zones. The structural framework is described with the terminology of thin-skinned tectonics and flats, ramps and hanging-wall anticlines are identified in the cliff-section. A balanced cross section has been constructed. Based on this construction the structural model is verified and the glaciotectonic development is interpreted. A geoelectrical investigation has been made to support the construction of the 3-dimensional framework of the thrust complex.
