A description is given of marine sediments which were somewhat deplaced by the ice during the Last Glaciation. Of macro-fossils, finds were made of seal-bones, fragments of molluscs and remnants of wood. Radiocarbon datings gave an age of more than 40,000 years. The foraminiferal fauna shows northerly boreal conditions, with a neritic facies. Pollen analyses indicate a dense forest of Picea, Pinus, Betula, Alnus and Corylus. Picea is of special interest, as it does not grow in the area today. On the basis of the pollen analyses, the sediments are presumed to be of Late Eemian age.
