What is a Fjord?

A fjord is a long, deep, narrow arm of the sea or ocean that reaches far inland. They are usually lined with steep rock cliffs on both sides.

     Fjords were created by glaciers. During the last Ice Age, glaciers covered just about the entire planet. Glaciers move very slowly over time, and as they do so, they greatly alter the Earth’s topography. This process of glaciation carved deep valleys in the Earth’s crust.

     As each glacier melted, the ocean or sea inundated the cut, and a fjord was born.

     A fjord can be thousands of feet deep and is usually deepest at its farthest inland point, where the force of the glacial was strongest. Though we think of fjords mainly in Norway, they can also be found in Chile, New Zealand, Canada, Greenland, and Alaska.

      Some fjords have coral reefs. The largest are found at the bottom of Norwegian fjords and support fish, plankton, and sea anemones that have adapted to extreme cold water and darkness.

      Small rocky islands known as skerries are also found in fjords. They, too, were created by glaciation. The jagged Scandinavian coastline is cut into thousands of little chunks of land that are actually skerries. Alaska has them, too.
