Following the Younger Dryas, the first evidence of glacial activity in southern Norway in response to climatic change occurred during the early Holocene, when terminal moraines from the Erdalen Event formed beyond the position of later ‘Little Ice Age’ moraines. In front of present outlet glaciers on both sides of the Jostedalsbreen ice cap, sets of pre-‘Little Ice Age’ marginal moraines have been morphostratigraphically corre lated with the Erdalen Event. The lithostratigraphy in a peat bog at…

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)
Glacier fluctuations, equilibrium-line altitudes and palaeoclimate in Lyngen, northern Norway, during the Lateglacial and Holocene
Based on lacustrine and morpho-stratigraphical evidence from Lyngen in Troms, northern Norway, 13 marginal moraines have been mapped in front of Lenangsbreene in Strupskardet. Moraines M1-M13 are
Glacier variations in Breheimen, southern Norway: relative-age dating of Holocene moraine complexes at six high-altitude glaciers
Lichenometric evidence and Schmidt hammer R-values are used to date Holocene moraine sequences in front of six high-altitude (> 1500 m) glaciers in Breheimen, central southern Norway. At three
Early-Holocene glacier fluctuations of northern Grovabreen, western Norway
Marginal moraines on the northern side of Grovabreen, a plateau glacier in inner Sunnfjord, Western Norway, have been mapped and morphostratigraphically correlated with the Erdalen Event and possibly
Late Weichselian and Holocene glacier fluctuations, equilibrium-line altitudes and palaeoclimate in Lyngen, northern Norway: a high-resolution composite chronology based on lacustrine and morpho-stratigraphical evidence
Based on lacustrine and morpho-stratigraphical evidence from Lyngen in Troms, northern Norway, thirteen marginal moraines have been mapped and dated in front of Lenangsbreene in Strupskardet.
Glacier outburst floods reconstructed from lake sediments and their implications for Holocene variations of the plateau glacier Folgefonna in western Norway
A sudden release of large volumes of water during a glacier outburst flood (GLOF) is a major hazard worldwide. Here, we identify the sedimentary signature of glacial and non‐glacial processes,
Holocene glacier variation chronology of the Smørstabbtindan massif, Jotunheimen, southern Norway, and the recognition of century- to millennial-scale European Neoglacial Events
New stratigraphic evidence for the Holocene history of three glaciers in central Jotunheimen, southern Norway, is presented and the implications for century- to millennial-scale glacier and climatic
