Glaciotectonics and Mapping Glacial Deposits. James S. Aber — Science. Proceedings of the INQUA Commission on Formation and Properties of Glacial Deposits their stratigraphic record and reservoir characteristics of glaciogenic deposits. The book comprises 3 overview papers and 16 original case studies of Neoproterozoic to Pleistocene.

With a goal of publishing quality writing and scholarship on issues that matter to readers inside and outside the academy, the U of R Press . Regional mapping and classification of glaciotectonic landforms was undertaken by Moran et al. () across the northern Plains of the United States and western Canada. They recognized two categories of glacier-bed landforms: 1) glacial-thrust blocks and source depressions, and 2) streamlined terrain. In Aber, J. S.

The Copper River alluvial fan is an outwash plain, that is, formed from sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.
