Deglaciation and emergence of the Webb Bay – Port Manvers run area of Labrador.

By John. P. Johnson


Labrador's coastal scenery is dominated by evidence of Pleistocene glaciation. Before World War II only a few, generally bread studies touching on this subject bad been made in Labrador. From these the overwhelming effect of continental glaciation became clear. However, the chronology of glaciation had yet to be established, and little regional evidence bad been obtained to support existing hypotheses explaining the character and effects of Labrador-Quebec's glaciation. Expeditions like that of Vainö Tanner (1944) have shown that studies in detail or concentrated in small areas are essential if the deglaciation and emergence of coastal Labrador are to be understood
