Holocene landscape evolution in the Mellemfjord area, Disko Island, Central West Greenland: area presentation and preliminary results

Abstract

A study area at the northeastern shore of Mellemfjord, near the western maximum limit of the Greenland Ice Sheet during the Quaternary, was chosen for an analytic landscape study. Interactions between climate and landscape processes are designated for future detailed process research and monitoring. The project will focus on climatology, hydrology, energy exchanges at the terrain surface, mass fluxes and terrain element dynamics. Glacial, periglacial, fluvial and coastal landforms, soils and ecosystem record (in e.g. lakes and estuaries) will be used as geoindicators. Investigations were initiated during the summer of 1993
