Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine whether the dry-based glaciers of the Dry Valleys of southern Victoria Land, Antarctica, form a land system and sediment association that is different from the other thermal types. This paper examines and interprets the ice marginal sediments and landforms of several glaciers in the Taylor and Wright valleys. The principal characteristics of the ice marginal landforms and sediments are compared and contrasted with the existing facies model for arid polar glaciers, and with facies models from temperate and polythermal glaciers
