Anders Rapp (1927–1998) was a Swedish geomorphologist and geographer who first made a comprehensive study on avalanche boulder tongues. Most of Rapp's works were made in the Scandinavian mountains and Spitsbergen including the areas of Kärkevagge near Abisko and Kebnekaise.[1]

Studying under Filip Hjulström, Rapp got his Ph.D. at Uppsala University in 1961,[2] and was appointed professor of physical geography at Lund University in 1977.[3] In 1980, he was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
