Little ice age alluvial fan development in Langedalen, western Norway

Auteurs :

Description :
This paper reports a preliminary investigation of the sedimentary succession in 2 alluvial fans in western Norway. Sedimentological information is supplemented by palaeoecological data from pollen analysis and the age of the sequence is constrained by 6 radiocarbon age estimates on woody fragments and peat. On the basis of this information a pattern of enhanced fan development and vegetation change coincident with the climatic deterioration of the Little Ice Age can be established.
