Abstract

This paper describes glaciological features observed on the surface of the large outlet glacier Kuannersuit Glacier on Disko Island, during its initial quiescent phase after a major surge event occurred in 1995-98 in order to classify the glaciomorphological surge system. Focus will be on the ice-surface morphology of the advanced glacier tongue, with special attention to the evolution of the hydrological system. A chronological glaciomorphological model of the initial quiescent phase of Kuannersuit Glacier, which can be regarded as representative for large outlet surge-type glaciers with terrestrial terminal regime and long quiescent phase, is proposed
