NORDQUA field excursion 2022
Late Glacial glaciotectonics and marine limit shorelines of the Lower Borgarfjörður region, West Iceland.
The Lower Borgarfjörður region in West Iceland has been key for understanding the deglaciation of Iceland and the collapse of the Iceland Ice Sheet in Bølling times, as well as for deciphering Younger Dryas and Early Holocene (Preboreal) glacier dynamics. The excursion will visit marine limit shorelines and deltas in Akrafjall and Skorradalur, the spectacular Skorholtsmelar end-moraine complex, and the glaciotectonics of the Melabakkar-Ásbakkar coastal cliffs.
