Quaternary studies in Murchisonfjorden area (Finland)
Entry ID: kinnvika_Murchisonfjorden


Summary
Abstract: Results from glacial geological, sedimentological and chronological studies in the southern Murchisonfjorden area, Nordaustlandet. Field data include reconnaissance mapping, striae measurements and detailed logging of vertical sections along cliff-face outcrops few metres high adjacent to the present-day shoreline. Combined with OSL and AMS age determinations, these data provide evidence of three successive Weichselian sequences, each represented by the deposition of till followed by the accumulation of shallow marine deposits.
