In the Vanch valley moraines were formed under conditions of plastic ice flow (by loayers) with incidental thrusting ise scales| they consist of monolithic and scaly facies of basal till. The moraines on the valley slopes do not fit the term " Lateral moraine "| being a part of a single body of basal till| a new term is suggested which emphasizes the position of the deposit on the valley slope ( " slope moraine " or " border moraine "). A kind of morainic terraces was formed by meltwater during the glacied downwasting, during phases of temporal stability of the ice surface. Similar regularities are typical for the till structure and morphology in other valleys in Pamir where large glaciers existed during the Pleistocene. - (L'Ed.)
