Abstract

A new till provenancing technique based on Chalk micropaleontology is described with the object of refining understanding of the ice sheet which deposited the Lowestoft Formation till (Anglian/Elsterian) and its relationship to Scandinavian ice sheets. This technique involves extracting foraminifera from Chalk erratics and till matrix obtained from stratigraphically controlled till sections and comparing their micropaleontologywith that of Upper Cretaceous Chalk bedrock. The revised ice-flow trajectories imply constraint of the British ice sheet by Scandinavian ice
