Abstract
<p>Fjord-valleys, as sediment-filled palaeofjords, are characteristic of formerly glaciated mountainous coastal areas. High-Arctic fjord-valleys commonly host permafrost, but are poorly accessible and hence have drawn relatively little research. The research presented in this thesis combines the methods of cryostratigraphy, clastic sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, geomorphology and geochronology to investigate the sedimentary infilling, permafrost formation and late Quaternary landscape development in two classical high- Arctic fjord-valleys: the Zackenberg in northeast Greenland (74&deg;30&rsquo;N, 20&deg;30&rsquo;W) and the Adventdalen in central Svalbard...
