Abstract

Field works and analysis of air photos of the Hilmarfjellet Region (Sørkapp Land, Spitsbergen) enabled to prepare a photogeologic map of this area in scale of 1:10 000. Slopes, glacial, nival, marine, karst and valley features and sediments were distinguished. The paper presents also a morphogenetic evolution of the Hilmalfjellet Region. This area seems to have been glaciated during the last but one (Wedel Jarlsberg Land = Riss), and last (Sorkapp Land = Würm) Pleistocene glaciations, and also during the Late Holocene episode of the Little Ice Age.―(D'après l'A.)
