Abstract

The aim of this study is to identify ice-flow instability, e.g., surge-related events, for a retreating glacier with unknown surge record. The AA. compare the landform assemblage from the foreground of Elisebreen with hypothesized geomorphological criteria derived from observations of surging glaciers elsewhere and find that ice-flow instability can be inferred when geomorphological criteria are combined with sedimentological data
