Abstract (in czech)
   The Elsterian continental glacier was checked in the course of its southern advance through the Frýdland Hilly Land by the barrier of the Jizera Mts. The ice sheet reached up to ~420-430 m a.s.l. in the northern foothills of the mountains. The only possibility for further penetration to the south was the upward movement through narrow valleys and crossing over the lowermost transfluence pass of the Oldřichov Col. The northern valley was filled to the altitude 430-460 m a.s.l. by the ice and due to the subsequent pushing of the advancing ice mass stood the ice sheet front up to the Oldřichov Col (478 m). The glacier lobe penetrated ~1800-2000 m beyond the col to the southern valley during its maximum advance, this corresponds approximately to the beginning of the accumulation of the sedimentary body of the Mníšek glaciofluvial sand and gravel. The maximum thickness of the ice in the northern valley did not exceed ~50-60 m, near the Oldřichov Col the ice thickness remained <10 m.
