Detailed bathymetric maps have been prepared from the data made by the hydrographers of Norsk Polarinstitutt in the last 35 years. Many probable glaciogenic bathymetric features appear on the maps, and possible side- and end-moraines and U-shaped valleys can be recognized. Since the seismic and drilling data from these areas are limited, the interpretations from the morphologies are at present merely tentative. However, these maps will be useful for the planning of future research on the submarine glacial geology.
