Ein Vorsto des Inlandfeises in Westgrönland - Dojumentation des vorrückenden Eisrandes bei Søndre Strømfjord
A glacier advance in Western Greenland - documentation of a prograding ice front near Søndre Strømfjord (Anglais)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



After attaining a maximum extension at the turn of the century, the Inland Ice has retreated continuously in Middle West Greenland within the last decades. Since a couple of years, however, there are strong indications of a new advance... The prograding glaciers in West Greenland may be comparable with the ice margins of Europe in early phases of the maximum glaciation of the last Ice Age. Some of the actuogeological observations are of interest concerning sediments (Vorstoschotter) generated by the advancing Piedmont Glaciers of the Alpine Foreland. - (L'A.)
