    The history of Holocene glacier variations of Flatebreen, an independent glacier close to the SW part of the Jostedalsbreen ice cap, has been reconstructed from lacustrine sediments in the proglacial lake Jarbuvatnet. The sedimentary succession shows evidence of three main episodes of Holocene...
