Glacial history of Sjuøyane

The purpose of the project is to get data on the late Quaternary glacial history of the Barents Sea ice sheet. Study objects on Sjuøyane are raised beaches, glacial landforms, stratigraphical sections in coastal outcrops. Sampling includes lithological samples, fossil molluscs and driftwood/whalebones for dating with 14C, TL-OSL and amino-acid determinations. Lake sediment cores will be taken for studying Holocene environmental changes.
