Description :
Geologic and geomorphologic research in the Lisbet Valley 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. (D'après les AA.).
