The Vestfold Hills landscape is dominated by bare-rock slopes and unconsolidated deposits form a minor component of the surficial geology. The principal objectives of the study were to explain the distribution of unconsolidated deposits, determine the nature and timing of sedimentary processes during and after deglaciation, and the impact of these processes on landscape development. Observations of late Quaternary glaciation and deglaciation of the area and contemporary depositional processes are reported, and a conceptual model of geomorphological change since deglaciation is presented
