Abstract

Sampling of sediment from the fjord floor in front of tidewater glaciers in Glacier Bay, Alaska, has provided information about processes in this restricted glacimarine setting. Five distinct facies associations have been found to reflect glacier-fjord regimes. The facies associations and ice-fjord conditions responsible for them form the basis for constructing a preliminary model for glacimarine sedimentation by tidewater glaciers, which can be used to interpret facies associations found in a stratigraphic record.
