Abstract

Samples of clasts from deposits with different erosional "histories" near the margins of four Jotunheimen glaciers revealed systematic differences in their aggregate form characteristics. Samples of frost-shattered detritus generally contain many "slabby" clasts (low c: a axis ratios) but samples from subglacial deposits and talus do not. The distinction is relatable to the spacing of dilation joints in the parent rock. The potential for employing systematic differences in aggregate clast form characteristics in studies of glacial landforms and sediments is discussed.
