Abstract [en]
A 50 km2 large investigation area on the west coast of Spitsbergen, Svalbard has been studied primarily focusing periglacial forms and processes. The area is situated on the outer part of Isfjorden, south of Kapp Linné (78°04'N, 13°38'E) and is extremely rich in small lakes and ponds. The paper presents an inventory of 87 lakes and ponds and distinguishes nine types of shores: rock shores, block shores, bog shores, patterned ground shores, ridge shores, thermokarst shores, delta shores, talus shores, and terrace shores. The geomorphological and hydrographical character of these shore types are described in relation to the active periglacial processes and the presence of permafrost. The bedrock morphology which basically is forming a cuesta landscape, the presence of permafrost and the frequent development of high storm ridges which block river out-lets along the coast give the hydrographic pattern and the surface water discharge a peculiar and characteristic pattern.
