Abstract

Owing to increased winter balances especially since 1988/89, almost all valley outlet glaciers of Jostedalsbreen in western Norway are experiencing the largest advance since that of the early 18th century, the regional Little Ice Age maximum. Observations made along the glacier front suggest that the formation of these moraines can best be described as bulldozed moraines. Large boulders left in the proglacial areas are pushed forward, forming pressure ridges on the distal side. Some of the largest boulders are overturned or rotated by the glacier
