Abstract

The article discusses the nature of the glacial inversion problem, which is defined as the extraction of time-slice ice-sheet flow patterns from the patchy and partly overprinted landform record present in former ice-sheet areas. A coherent inversion model for derivation of flow patterns and interior ice-sheet configuration from geomorphological data is presented. Glacial landscapes are classified according to the three criteria of internal age gradients, presence or absence of meltwater traces aligned to flow traces, and basal condition (frozen bed/thawed bed) inferred from morphology
