Abstract

This paper reports stratigraphic and morphologic data from the Mc Vitiepynten area, northern Prins Karl Forland that further constrain the Weichselian glacial history of Prins Karls Forland and highlight the question of the westward extension of the Barents Sea ice sheet. The results indicate similar environmental histories for central and northern Prins Karls Forland. It is concluded that during the period c. 70 to 10 ka, northern Prins Karls Forland experienced cold subaerial polar desert conditions and that glacial activity is limited to the expansion of local glaciers during oxygen isotope stage 4 or late in stage 5 and during the Late Weichselian
