Abstract

Large sediment wedges are deposited in front of glacially eroded troughs on the continental shelf in the Weddell Sea and Prydz Bay, Antarctica, and in the Barents Sea north of the Norwegian mainland. The troughs have been eroded by multiple glacial advances in areas with a convergent ice stream pattern and the wedges consist primarily of glaciomarine sediments. The sediment wedges have been studied through the interpretation of several thousand km's of multichannel seismic reflection data from the outer shelf and continentale slope.
