Abstract

During earlier glaciations the influence of volcanism on glaciers and frozen strata caused the specific conditions for subglacial eruptions forming strata of welded tuffs and pumices, and thick strata of debris-Recent and older glaciers in regions of active volcanism are covered with large amounts of pyroclastic material. During intense melting of glacier ice, thick morainic deposits were formed. Similar conditions are found in Iceland, as described by Thorarinsson (1968, 1974) among others.
