Abstract

Macro- and micro-scale sedimentological analyses of recently deposited tills and complex push/squeeze moraines on the forelands of Icelandic glaciers and in a stacked till sequence at the former Younger Dryas margin of the Loch Lomond glacier lobe in Scotland are used to assess the depositional processes involved in glacier submarginal emplacement of sediment. The AA. employed clast fabric analyses, micro-morphology, sedimentological logging and structural logging in order to combine micro-scale observations with macro-scale field data. Repeated reworking of the thin end of submarginal till wedges produces overprinted strain signatures and clasts pavements
