Ice front variations of the Scandinavian ice sheet from 13,000 to 10,000 years BP are summarised with the main emphasis on the Allerod and Younger Dryas chronozones. In Finland, Sweden and eastern Norway there was a great net retreat, in SW Norway the ice front oscillated back and forth, and in the NW part of southern Norway the ice front retreated during the Allerod and halted during the Younger Dryas. The differences are interpreted in terms of different topography and therefore different glacial responses to climatic changes.
