Abstract

This paper documents the sediment-flow processes associated with the resedimentation of an ice-cored lateral moraine at Kongsvegen, Svalbard. Decay of the ice-cored lateral moraine is dominated by the development of a sediment-flow fan, which has an hour-glass form in plan. The evolution of this fan and the likely end-products after complete deglaciation are discussed, and this paper contributes modern analogue data relevant to the interpretation of the Pleistocene landform and sediment record
