Subglacial erosion, deposition and deformation associated with deformable beds

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



There is an inter-relationship among subglacial deformation, deposition and erosion associated with a glacier moving over a deformable bed. It is suggested that the best evidence for net subglacial deforming bed erosional conditions are drumlins. Changes in subglacial hydrology are also discussed, and the relationship of eskers and tunnel valleys to deforming bed conditions. Sedimentary techniques to identify homogeneous deforming bed tills in the field are also suggested. Finally the extent and style of deforming bed conditions that existed during the glaciations of Britain and Ireland are discussed
