Lake Linnévatnet is situated near the mouth of Isfjorden, on thc west coast of Spitsbergen (Fig. 1A). According to Denton & Hughes (1981) and Mangerud et al. (1987) it lies within the Late Weichselian ice boundary. whereas according to Boulton (1979) and Troitsky et al. (1979) it is outside that boundary. The purpose of this paper is to describe the stratigraphy of the lake sediments and discuss the timing of the glacial retreat.
