Summary
The superficial deposits ocurring within the map-sheet area are classified according to their genesis and described. Till is the dominationg sediment, but considerable glacifluvial deposits also occur. Glacier movement directions have been recounstructed in eight phases and subphases. The three youngest subphases correlate with events during the deglaciation. The older phases are considered to span most of Weichselian time. Of the eight glacial events known form the Porsangerfjord area, four occur within the map-area: the Repparfjord event (Older Dryas?), the Gaissa and the Main events (mainly Younger Dryas?) and the Rotnes event (early Preboral?). Extensive deposits, mainly glacifluvial, are related to the Main event. Radiocarbon datings are lacking and suggested ages are based on correlation with dated events in Troms.
