Abstract

Detailed morphological analysis of the boulder fields on the Mt Fulufjället plateau has revealed three morphologically and genetically different boulder field types| 1) boulder depressions related to up freezing in till| 2) boulder blankets| i.e. glacially transported boulder masses, and 3) frost-shattered debris in situ. No large-scale periglacial forms appear to have developed on the plateau during the Holocene. An area of more than 60 km2 of an interstadial periglacial landscape has survived virtually unchanged despite complete ice cover during the late Weichselian
