A reconstruction of Pleistocene ice sheet limits in Slieve Bloom using heavy minerals

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents the results of a survey of alluvial heavy minerals sampled from both upland and piedmont catchments of Slieve Bloom with the aim of reconstructing the incursion pattern of lowland ice into the uplands. The distribution of alluvial heavy minerals, used in conjunction with the previously reported characteristics of both tills and glaciofluvial sediments, allows both a detailed reconstruction of glacial deposition and insights into the effects of changing subglacial topography on the thermal regime of the ice that crossed the central midlands to be made
