dc.description.abstractForkortet: Up to the present, the relief of Norway has not been understood sufficiently to allow of a satisfactory explanation being given of even the most salient features, such as the contrast between plateau and valley, which was the subject of a very notable paper by P.A.Munch as much as half a century ago. The Sognefjord, with its adjacent valleys, forms a magnificent system, of which the inner ramifications are surrounded by the loftiest part of our country \"The Great Mountains of Norway\". They enclose in a 3\/4 circle a basin of palaeic high plateaus. The figure on p. 137 is from its outer part, where the relation between plateau and valleys is clearly seen. A great Sogne river and its side streams have eroded the fiord and its many arms in the palaeic surface during a long and eventful history (Map p.140 and p.247). It is stated above that the fiord-valleys were probably formed as well by running water as by ice alternating during interglacial and glacial periods. It is just from the Sogne- fjord that we have proofs that the great glaciers that filled the fiord in the latest glacial period, even if they achieved a fair amount of work, did not obliterate everywhere the vestiges of the previous water erosion.
