Figure 2: The lower plateau in the image is called Bredalsfjell at about 1300m asl (Lyngen peninsula Troms, Norway, some 100km south of Fig 1). The highest summit (Jiek’kevarri) is an ice dome at about 1800m asl and sits, as can be seen, on a bedrock plateau at about 1700m. Jiek’kevarri has glaciers that spill well down to the valley but Bredalsfjell’s plateau ice has all but vanished.
