Summary
The superficial deposits occurring within the map-sheet are classified and described according to their genesis. The ice-marginal lines - Repparfjord- trinnet and the younger Hovedtrinnet - are reconstructed and it is suggested that these events belong to the Older Dryas and Younger Dryas chronozones, respectively. Till and weathering material (blockfield) dominate the superficial material. Glaciofluvial and fluvial deposits occur mostly in the main valley, Repparfjorden. Several well-defined meltwater channels are present in the Skaidi area. These channels might indicate that meltwater runoff increased when the front of the glacier reached this point of the valley. Seismic profiles have been used to calculate the volume of some of the glaciofluvial deposits. Various geotechnical tests have been carried out on some of these sediments in order to classify them for technical purposes.
