Abstract

A 56 cm long sediment core from Kuannersuit Sulluat, a fjord on the island Disko, West Greenland is used to infer modern sedimentation rates and describe the sedimentary environment. The fjord abuts a catchment area dominated by a recently surging glacier (1995-1999). Analyses of the core included magnetic susceptibility, x-radiographs and grain size analysis. Modern sedimentation rates in the fjord appear to be more than 10 times higher than average annual rates during the Holocene. This is due to changes in melt-water discharge and shorter distance to the sediment source caused by the glacier surge
