Abstract:

Recent subsurface mapping of parts of Jakobshavn Isbrae region indicates that fjord system was more ice-free at 2700-4700 a BP than it is now, and that front of glacier was at least 15 km behind present position. The 14C datings of subfossils at present ice margin fit with climatic records from ice cores and confirm favourable conditions for Greenland's first settlers.
