Norwe-gian Journal of Geology, Vol. 83, pp. Trondheim , ISSN X. The paper is a study of sedimentary processes and the environment in a fjord basin in Ullsfjorden, northern Norway. The area of the glacier complexes varies between and km 2, the valley glaciers between and , the cirque glaciers between and , and the ice caps finally between and km 2. Contents; The glaciers of .

      The last glaciation of Shetland, North Atlantic. Geogr. Ann., 90 A (1): 37– ABSTRACT. Evidence relating to the extent, dynam-ics, and relative chronology of the last glaciation of the Shetland Islands, North Atlantic, is presented here, in an attempt to better illuminate some of the controversies that still surround the glacial history. A single place might have multiple layers of glacial drift separated by more normal sediments. They realised that term ‘Ice Age’ is a simplification; this was phenomena that pulsed. Outside of the Polar regions, the ice caps came and went many times, dancing in time with the stately precession of the earth’s axis.

Ice sheets, and especially the build-up of ice sheets, will have a much slower response, and it will take hundreds and probably even thousands of years to build up a large ice sheet covering Norway. Some of the most important new evidence for the ice sheet development in Norway during MIS 4 and early MIS 3 come from Denmark (Larsen et al Cited by: glacial scouring, probably took place both during the Late Weichselian glacial maximum and the Younger Dryas Chronozone (Fig.

Mass loss from the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) accelerated over the two last decades, and the GrIS is expected to be the largest cryospheric contributor to global sea level rise in the 21st century [Hanna et al., ].To predict the future contribution of the GrIS to sea level rise, we must understand the physical processes that govern ice sheet mass Cited by: Shareable Link.
