Abstract

Thick sandy-silty saprolites occur on some plateaus and lower areas of the Lofoten-Vesteralen islands. Their location and their thickness (up to 8 m) suggest a pre-Weichselian or pre-glacial origin. But their composition does not imply warmer climatic conditions than now. Thus an influence of post-glacial weathering cannot be excluded, though these saprolites are probably significant for the knowledge of the pre-glacial landscape development
