Abstract

Sognefjord is formed by a combination of exploitation of rock structure and subaerial and subglacial processes. The fjord system follows zones of rock-structural weakness. Above sea level the landforms are due mainly to subaerial processes, and somewhat surprisingly not to glacial activity. Removal of erosive products and deepening of the fjord below sea level is due to glacial erosion
