Fjord

From Openwaterpedia

Jump to: navigation, search

noun - A fjord is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created in a valley carved by glacial activity. The word comes to English from Norwegian, but related words are used in several Scandinavian languages - in many cases to refer to any long narrow body of water, rather than the more specific meaning it has in English.
