 Fjord Summary
A fjord (or fiord) is a narrow inlet of the sea between cliffs or steep slopes, which results from marine inundation of a glaciated valley.
Fjord is an English loan word taken from the Scandinavian term fjord, which derives from the Old Norse fjörðr (pronounced "fyurthr", now fjörður in Icelandic) meaning firth or inlet.
The principal mountainous regions where fjords have formed are in the higher middle latitudes where, during the glacial period, many valley glaciers descended to the then-lower sea level.
