Abstract

In spite of spectacular prints made by glaciations, the differential erosion in the igneous rocks of Flackstadoy must be less exclusively explained by mechanical processes than in other regions, glaciated during the Quaternary era. The Lofoten were situated on the margin of the inlandsis. In this Artic area, 68N, the bedrock is often much more weathered than in Southern Norway| outside of the large glacial troughs, many old forms have only been little alterated by cirque glaciers. The different resistances of rocks with regard to the glacial actions.
