Fjord valleys are carved during glaciation and then form local sediment sinks, which fill during retreat of the ice. Thus fjord valleys appear analogous to lower-latitude incised valleys, but they are remarkably different because fjords experience isostatic rebound during deglaciation, causing relative sea level to fall during infill.

This paper explores stratigraphic architecture of fjord valley fills based on Late Quaternary deposition in Clyde Inlet, Baffin Island, Arctic Canada, as constrained by 11 cosmogenic dates and 9 accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) 14C datings.

A major ice stream of the Laurentide Ice Sheet occupied Clyde Inlet at last glacial...
