This section of the website includes many examples of landforms created underneath and around the margins of glaciers. These depositional landforms typically form in two domains: subglacial landforms and ice-marginal landforms.
Subglacial landforms include:
- A continuum of lineated bedforms, ranging from small scale (flutes), through to intermediate scale (10s of metres; Drumlins), through to large scale (kilometres; Megascale glacial lineations).
- Sediments and landforms associated with meltwater, such as eskers.
Ice-marginal landforms include:
- Piles of debris formed at the ice margin, such as moraines;
- Till plains formed underneath the ice sheet;
- Fluvioglacial landforms such as kames, outwash plains, meltwater channels.
There are lots of examples of these types of landforms across the Patagonian Ice Sheet.
