Abstract [en]

In a periglacial environment it is important to know the thickness, orientation and structureof sediments when assessing the landscape and its hydrological pathways. Using a groundpenetratingradar (GPR) I have profiled large areas of the subsurface in a catchment area to alake on western Greenland. Post-processing and calculations of the gathered data has revealedthat the sediment thickness is maximum 15 meters in the valleys. Due to the fact that nocorrelation data is available, such as boreholes or pits, this estimation has large error limits butthe profiles gathered reveals the structure in the subsurface to a great extent.
