Several outlet glaciers of Jostedalsbreen flow from the central plateau ice-cap into surrounding valleys. A well-established Holocene glacier chronology reveals that the ‘Little Ice Age’ with its culmination ~1750 CE was the most prominent neoglacial event in the region. Glacial and glaciofluvial landforms on the glacier forelands are, therefore, accurately determinable in their age and allow detailed interpretation of causal relationships between geomorphology and glacier dynamics.

Fluvial Processes and Contemporary Fluvial Denudation in Different Mountain Landscapes in Western and Central Norway

In the mountainous landscapes of mainland Norway, fluvial processes and contemporary fluvial denudation occur in both non-glacierized and glacierized (glacier-connected) drainage basin systems.

Geomorphological Landscapes, Earth Surface Processes and Landforms in Norway

Mainland Norway stands for a great variety of partly spectacular landscapes with these landscapes being a function of geological and geomorphological processes working over very long time spans.

Krundalen, a valley occupied by three eastern outlet glaciers of the Jostedalsbre ice cap, contains three groups of moraines, two of which are outside the dated neoglacial (`Little Ice Age', LIA)

Contemporary terminal‐moraine ridge formation at a temperate glacier: Styggedalsbreen, Jotunheimen, southern Norway

Terminal-moraine ridges up to 6 m high have been forming at the snout of Styggedalsbreen for two decades. Based on intermittent observations during this period, combined with a detailed study of

Glacial remobilization cycles as revealed by lateral moraine sediment, Bødalsbreen glacier foreland, western Norway

The proglacial area of Bødalsbreen glacier in western Norway contains nine moraine ridges formed at the maximum of the `Little Ice Age' (~AD 1755) and during the subsequent glacier retreat (AD

Formation of a Push Moraine at the Margin of Höfdabrekkujökull, South Iceland

ABSTRACTThe NE margin of the glacier Hofdabrekkujokull - a piedmont lobe extending from the SE part of the ice cap Myrdalsjokull—is currently advancing, and along the glacier terminus a dislocated

Holocene glacier fluctuations at Hardangerjøkulen, central-southern Norway: a high-resolution composite chronology from lacustrine and terrestrial deposits

Holocene glacier fluctuations at the northern sector of Hardangerjøkulen, central-southern Norway, are reconstructed from four radiocarbon-dated lake and terrestrial sites in the Finse region. For

From push moraine to single-crested dump moraine during a sustained glacier advance

In the 1980s, the NE part of the principal outlet glacier Kötlujökull on the east flank of the temperate ice cap Mýrdalsjökull was advancing; the maximum average rate of annual advance of 32 m was
