Late Holocene. evolution of the Treskelen Peninsula (Hornsund, Spitsbergen)

Abstract


The studies over sediments and landforms of the Treskelen Peninsula found them to occupy a considerably larger area and to be more varying than considered previously. A mutual relation of these features enabled to fix the successive phases of their formation, dependent on a rate of the Hyrne Glacier retreat. A critical approach to Heintz's (1953) and Birkenmajer's (1964) glacier extents and the occurrence of a glint lake at the peninsula during the Little Ice Age is also presented.
