Abstract

Geomorphological indications of tectonic activity in the Danish glacial landscape were pointed out already by Milthers (1916, 1948). He described a conspicuous system of N–S-trending, narrow valleys in central Jylland and interpreted them as fault-generated features (fracture valleys). The valleys occur in the area between Ulstrup and Hammel and in a smaller area near Skjød (Fig. 1). The most significant valley system is found near Hvorslev, and it is here referred to as the Hvorslev lineaments (Fig. 1).
