G. Glückert

Abstract. On the last Glaciation of the Alps and Fennoscandia. During the Pleistocene the Alps and the Fennoscandian Shield were covered several times with extensive ice caps. During the last Ice Age. the Würm or Weichsel Glaciation, the maximum extent of the glaciers occurred at the end of the Ice Age, as late as 20.000 years ago. The main retreat phases during deglaciation were marked as distinct ice marginal zones and dated between 20,000 and 9,000 BP.
