... ). During the last glacial, Sassenfjorden and Tempelfjorden were covered with grounded ice depositing a basal till and leading to the formation of glacial lineations (Fig. 14 a). After the end of rapid ice flow the glacier fronts retreated stepwise, resulting in the deposition of recessional moraines (Fig...

...; Vorren 2009 ). In this scenario, most icebergs were trapped within the sea ice so that most of their debris melted out in the vicinity of the glacier front. Furthermore, material incorporated in the sea ice would rarely reach the central fjord if the sea ice broke up occasionally. The formation...

Mainland fjords drain high mountains and ice fields with sediment input from snowmelt and glacier runoff in spring and summer. By contrast, the inlets on Vancouver Island are in a milder marine climate, and sediment input occurs...
