Abstract

In South Eastern Iceland, some ice-contact features are described, at the foot of Vatnajokull especially| the development of kettle holes is the result of fast modifications of sandur areas and moraines by the melting out of glacier ice. Two main kinds of kettle holes are distinguished: kettles resulting from the melting out of icebergs swept away by glacier bursts (jokulhaups), collapse structures in glacial and fluvioglacial deposits after burying of dead when ice margins retreat.
