Abstract
Lake Tuborg is an example of lake that has been cut off from a fiord (Greely Fiord) by glacier advance; the radiocarbon ag e of the old seawater near the bottom of the lake indicates that this occurred about 3,000 years ago. Seven lakes near the north coast of Ellesmere Island were also investigated at elevations ranging from 2.5 to 53 m above sea level.
