The terminal moraine here is distinguished from the others by its large size combined with the fact that the overall topography is superimposed by several other landscape features. On the top of the ridge there is a row of small, irregular, elongate hills separated by depressions that have no natural drainage channels. The difference in elevation between the tops of the hills and the bases of the depressions is typically about 10 meters. The irregular hills are 200 - 400 meters long and follow the overall length of direction of the ridge. The depressions between the hills are water-filled or hollows with peat on their floors (Figure 11-2). North of this area on the top of the ridge the surface is covered by smaller elongate hills and closed hollows. These are typically lower, more irregular and the orientations of their long axes are more varied than those on the top of the ridge. Furthest north the elongate hills again reach lengths of 200 - 400 m but they are lower and are extend NW-SE; the landscape here is gently undulating.
All of these landscape forms bear witness to a complex history of formation during melting of the glaciers whose re-advance was responsible for the overall shape of the terminal moraine. The area with elongate hills and intervening hollows indicate that dead ice played an important role during the melting process. Comparison of this locality with the other large moraine in the area (site 7 Nørlem - Nørre Nissum) gives insight into the large variation in landscape forms that can develop during the formation of a terminal moraine and the subsequent melting of the dead-ice left behind in the glacial landscape. The many bogs and small lakes in the area are protected by Nature Conservancy Law § 3 (protected types of nature).
