Abstract

Glacier foregrounds of Jotunheimen are characterized by the occurrence of Little Ice Age end moraines, dating to approximately the mid 18th century. Patterned-ground features occurring within chronologically established time units were studied. Sorted circles and sorted nets showed significant changes in soil pH across the chronosequences. All glacier forelands showed a higher soil pH with depth in patterned ground features. The importance of microsite variability and associated disturbance is stressed and should be incorporated when studying environmental change at traditional landscape scales
