Even though the MSL separates two very different landscapes and is among Denmark´s most significant geological features, its precise location is commonly difficult to locate. There is, in many cases, no obvious topographic feature indicating the presence of the MSL. However, in the Lomborg area it can readily be recognized.
Just north of, and parallel to, the road at Lomborg there is a marked ridge that stretches for 3-4 km. The ridge, which is part of a terminal moraine, reaches 44 m above sea level just north of Lomborg. It is a bit lower to the west and a bit higher to the east. The southern flank of this terminal moraine slopes gradually down to the outwash plain, falling about 12 m over some 500 m, most steeply near the top. The flank consists of moraine clay together with large areas of sand and gravel outwash deposits, as can be seen in alluvial fans on the distal side of the front terminal moraine of modern glaciers. The northern flank of the terminal moraine is steeper than the southern flank and falls about 10 m over a distance of about 100 m.
