Piotr Kłysz, Leszek Lindner


Geologic and geomorphologic research in the Lisbet Valley (Lisbetdalen) and Kulmstranda proved a glaciation of the southern coast of Hornsund during the Würm (Vistulian) Glaciation. Maximum of this glaciation, expressed by an advance of glaciers in Hornsund, occurred about 45-40 000 years BP. An early retreat stage of the ·glaciers, marked among others by the highest marine terrace (80-100 m a.s.l.) took place about 25-20 000 years BP.
