End moraines in alpine areas tend to form ridges, but the actual size and appearance of the ridges may vary considerably depending on the amount of time during which the glacier margin was stationary, the amount of material the glacier was transporting, and the rate of ice flow. If the glacier margin is stationary (i.e. the size of.

The reconstruction of ice sheet extents during glacials is a crucial step as it provides the necessary input parameter for modelling ice sheet volumes, dynamics and associated sea-level fluctuations and climate (e.g.

Notches in the sky line are meltwater channels related to higher ice margins: Moraines are landforms created at the margins of glaciers by the melt-out of debris.

Associations of flutings, drumlins, hummocks and transverse ridges were created in the inner marginal zone of the ice sheet, where, nearer the ice margin, the ice was already thinner and the former higher flow velocity had slowed down due to the decreased volume of transported ice. However, as the ice flow mechanics tend to favour certain higher flow velocities, which can, to some extent, Cited by: The LiDAR data was interpolated to a 2 by 2 m digital elevation model (DEM).

To enhance faults and glacial morphological features, with respect to the Pulju moraine, on the DEM we applied the tilt derivative (TDR) that is the arctangent of the ratio of a vertical to a combined horizontal derivative (Miller and Singh,Verduzco et al., Cited by: Landforms of Glacial Deposition Ice-marginal Subglacial Glacial Glaciotectonic* moraines Flutes, megaflutes Dump moraines Drumlins Ablation moraines Rogen moraine Mega-scale glacial lineaments Glaciofluvial Outwash fans/plains Eskers Kames, kame terraces Some of the consistent features of most of the theories are: 1.
