Sedimente und Ablagerungsmechanismen in instabilen proglaziären Seen (Eisrandstauseen) in Westgrönland

Herbert Scholz
Close to Søndre Strømfjord in West Greenland, a number of ice contact lakes with unstable water levels are dammed by the margin of the inland ice. From time to time they drain more or less completely beneath the glacier. Thus, the sediments at the bottom of such dry lake basins can be eliminated in an easy way. 7 lakes of this type, 3 of which were empty in summer 1993, could be investigated in detail...
