Record #119618:

Quaternary geology of western Melville Island, Northwest Territories / D.A. Hodgson.

Title: Quaternary geology of western Melville Island, Northwest Territories / D.A. Hodgson.
Author(s): Hodgson, D. A.
Date: 1992.
In: Geological Survey of Canada. Paper. (1992.), Vol. 89-21 (1992)
Abstract: Describes geology and glacial geology of peninsula, based on interpretation of air photographs, followed by fieldwork in 1985 and 1989. Peninsula is mostly mantled by several metres of frost-disaggregated bedrock, bearing no clear indicators of glaciation. Scattered patches of till, ice-contact deposits, and undated raised glaciomarine deposits were left by partial cover of local ice (probably Late Wisconsinan). Rare erratics of southern provenance at all elevations suggest inundation by continental ice in Early Quaternary. M'Clure Glacier pushed onto south coast before 11.7 ka.
