FJORD a narrow inlet or sea lock linked to the ocean, usually bounded by cliffs, and with spectacular scenery. Most are located in Alaska, Norway, and New Zealand. Fjords are usually created by glacier erosion which cut deep U shaped valleys followed by rises in sea levels filling them with sea-water.


Fjord - wikipedia

A fjord or fiord is a long, narrow estuary with steep sides, created in a glacially carved valley that is filled by rising sea water levels. The seeds of a fjord are laid when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley through abrasion of the surrounding bedrock by the sediment it carries.
