Abstract

We present a combination of fjord bathymetry and shallow seismic data from Kongsfjorden and Krossfjorden, Svalbard, to characterize and analyse change in the fjord coastal environment physiography and the glaciosedimentary processes since the Last Glacial Maximum. Swath bathymetry reveals a series of several styles of landform, frequently superimposed upon each other, permitting the reconstruction of the relative timings of deposition of each landform with the oldest successively overlain and cross-cut by younger landforms and erosional processes. Large transverse ridges interpreted as recessional moraines are overlain by streamlined lineations formed subglacially during a subsequent ice advance. A complex of recessional morainal ridges occurring within the central fjord are incised by glacial lineations and meltwater channels from younger glacial events.
