English term or phrase:truncated spur
Emnet er gletsjere/dal-/landskabsformationer. Termen optræder i en liste, hvor der også nævnes andre beslægtede termer (cirques, horn, hanging valley, u-shaped valley).
Jeg har fundet forsk. definitioner på engelsk, bl.a. denne fra Wikipedia: "A truncated spur occurs when the action of a glacier does not follow the original course of the river that wound round interlocking spurs, but, as the force of a glacier is much more powerful and cannot flow as freely around corners, it can carve its way though the rock cutting off the edges of interlocking spurs to form truncated spurs. Hanging valleys are found in between truncated spurs from a side view as the Hanging valleys join the main glacier from an angle".
Er der nogen, der kender den specifikke danske term?
