Photo in the Geochronological museum, Stockholm University. the Argentine oil business (Dirección General de los Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales). He worked mainly on sedimentological problems in the provinces of Salta and Jujuy in northern Argentine. The results were published as his doctor’s thesis 30 and also in Argentina. 31 His conclusions have been applied widely also in his later work as a consultant in geotechnics in Sweden.

Seventeen large and small papers were published, five of them with Ljungner as the only author. In Sweden, where he was appointed professor at Lund University in 1948, he continued to work mainly in the Scandinavian mountain range. 29 In Scandinavia, like in the Andes, glaciation had started on the maritime western side of the mountains. In Scandinavia, however, the centre of the ice sheet moved to a position far east of the range which was not the case in South America. He even, only on the basis of glacial striae, identified an early Weichselian interstadial in Scandinavia7, a model that was not stratigraphically confirmed until 20 years later.
