NILS-BERTIL SVENSSON

Geological Survey of Sweden, Department of Applied Geology and Research, Stockholm, 50.

LAKE LAPPAJÄRVI (lat. 63° 10′ N., long. 23° 40′ E.) is situated about 60 km east of Vaasa, about 200 km north-north-west of Helsinki (Fig. 1). The depression in which the lake is located is largely filled by deposits from the last glaciation.
