Abstract

This paper analyses the magnitude and frequency of depositional events associated with steep-faced glacier-fed progradational successions recorded in Scandinavia and Ireland. The successions exhibit depositional patterns that may be interpreted as a function of underlying non-linear dynamics. These patterns of sedimentation appear to be a function of the steepness of the delta front and/or the textural characteristics of the sediment. The AA. provide further evidence for the simultaneous presence of order and chaos in Earth surface processes and call into question the extent to which palaeoenvironmental reconstructions may be from steep-faced progradational successions
