A long, narrow arm of the sea, usually formed by entrance of the sea into a deep glacial trough.
glacial valley or glacial trough found along the coast that is now filled with a mixture of fresh water and seawater.
an over-deepened valley carved by a glacier and then flooded by sea water as the glacier melted
A long, narrow, U-shaped, glacier-carved inlet from the ocean.
narrow deep, steep sided inlet of sea.
A former glacial valley with steep walls and a U-shaped profile, now occupied by the sea.
Deep and narrow glacial valley invaded by sea water after the retreat of the glacier.
A deep, glacially carved, U-shaped valley flooded by rising sea level.
(also fiord) - A long, narrow inlet of the sea between steep slopes.
A narrow bay, U-shaped in cross-section, where the sea has flooded a valley carved by a glacier.
a deep coastal embayment caused by glacial erosion
A deep, narrow, steep-walled, U-shaped valley that was carved by a glacier and is now occupied by the sea.
A deep, steep-walled, U-shaped valley formed by erosion by a glacier and submerged with seawater.
a long narrow inlet of the sea between steep cliffs; common in Norway
a deep, rounded bottom, steep-sided cavity adjacent to the ocean
a long narrow coastal valley between rocky cliffs that were gouged out by one or more glaciers and then flooded by the nearby sea or ocean
a long, narrow inlet resulting from the subsidence of a mountainous coast and the subsequent flooding of the valleys
a narrow inlet between the sea and cliffs
a narrow inlet of water bordered by steep cliffs

a valley basin that was created through the erosion of a glacier
a very narrow valley that has very steep sides
alleys that have been cut deeper by moving glaciers and then invaded by the sea. Fjord estuaries have a deep elongated basin that is U-shaped and a ledge or barrier that separates the basin form the sea.
A glacially eroded or modified U-shaped valley that extends below sea level and connects to the ocean. Filled with seawater, depths may reach more than 1,000 feet below sea level. The largest Alaskan fiords are more than 100 miles long and more than 5 miles wide. Also spelled Fiord.
fee-yord]- steep walled inlet of a sea created by glacial gouging.
a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between steep slopes in a coastal area
A fjord is a long, narrow sea inlet that is bordered by steep cliffs.
glaciated valleys now flooded by the sea
A long, U-shaped and steep-sided valley leading underneath the sea, formed by glaciers.
A narrow, steep-sided sea inlet.
(122X) - Narrow steep-walled, U-shaped, partially submerged glacial valley.
A deep glacial trough submerged with seawater.
deep, long, steep-sided glacial trough that extends into the sea.
(Sometimes spelled fiord, fiard.) A deep-water inlet, usually surrounded by mountains; specifically a submerged U-shaped valley carved out by glacial action. The fjord is characteristic of the coastal regions of Norway, western Scotland and Ireland, Greenland, Labrador, Alaska, British Columbia, southern Chile, the Antarctic peninsula, southwest New Zealand, and other high-latitude oceanic islands (Iceland, Spitzbergen, Kerguelen, etc.).
glacial troughs that fill with sea water.
A fjord (or fiord) is a submergent landform which has occured due to a relative rise in sea level. This is a consequence of isostacy or eustacy.
