Abstract

Glaciotectonic deformations often result in a high degree of variability, including glaciotectonic and sedimentary variability. Redeposition of sediments during deformation increases the variability. Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) has proven to be a good method to determine sedimentary structures in glaciofluvial deposits (Olsen & Andreasen 1994; Van Overmeeren 1998) as well as glaciotectonic structures (Busby & Merrit 1999; Overgaard & Jakobsen 2001). Reflection facies analysis (radar facies) is a useful tool in the characterisation and interpretation of deformed sediments (Van Overmeeren 1998; Jakobsen & Overgaard 2002; Lerche et al. 2014). A GPR survey was carried out at Jyderup Skov in Odsherred in north-west Sjælland (Fig. 1). The presence of parallel ridges in the area indicates glaciotectonic deformation. The aim of the GPR study was to map the interior of the ridge complex and to interpret the genesis of the ridges.
