Abstract

Three main phases of ice-movement pattern in South Norway during the Weichselian are reconstructed. During phaseIII (possibly of Middle/Late Weichselian age) had an easterly situated ice divide. During phaseIV (Preboreal age) the ice divide had moved back to the West and had partly fragmented into separate domes. The migration of the ice divide from West to East may be due to glacier surges, whilst the ice-divide migration from phaseIII to IV was probably a result of a general reduction in size of the ice sheet. (E. Jahn).
