Geologiczne i geomorfologiczne slady würmskich i holocenskich zlodowacen w rejonie Hornsundu, Spitsbergen. in Polskie badania polarne 1970-1982.. (Geological and geomorphological evidence for Würm and Holocene glaciations in the Hornsund region, Spitsbergen)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Geological and geomorphological investigations, carried through by the authors to the south and the north of Hornsund, supplied with new data on Würm and Holocene glaciations in this part of Spitsbergen. Most information from that came from the Valleys: Slaklidalen and Revdalen. It proved that the Hornsund region was completely covered by the Würm glaciers about 45-40 thousand years BP. The following Würm glacier advances occupied smaller areas. The glaciers probably contacted with the Scandinavian ice sheet of that time through the Barents Shelf ice sheet. The following glacier advances in the described area occurred about 11-10 thousand years BP and in Late Holocene: at 2.5-2 thousand years BP and during Ice Age. (AA).
