Abstract

A numerical process model (Delft3D) was applied to evaluate the effects of palaeowind conditions on the Holocene fjord sediment infill dispersal pattern of Lake Strynevatnet, Norway. The sediment infill of Strynevatnet is affected the glaciation history if the nearby Jostedalsbreen ice cap. We found a potential effect of the induced (katabatic) wind climate on the current circulation pattern in the lake which mimics the observed sedimentation patterns. Simulating palaeo circulation pattens potentially allows to better asses the effects of subtle glaciation and climate variations on lake infill patterns.
