Record #119671:

Late Wisconsinan glaciation of the Glenlyon Range, Pelly Mountains, Yukon Territory, Canada / Brent C. Ward, Lionel E. Jackson, Jr.

Title: Late Wisconsinan glaciation of the Glenlyon Range, Pelly Mountains, Yukon Territory, Canada / Brent C. Ward, Lionel E. Jackson, Jr.
Author(s): Ward, Brent C.
Jackson, Lionel E.,
Date: 1992.
In: Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. (1992.), Vol. 29(9) (1992)
Abstract: Airphoto analysis, identification of erratics, and stratigraphic and geomorphic investigations were used to determine nature of McConnell glaciation in these mountains. Most peaks were nunataks in Selwyn Lobe of Cordilleran ice sheet. Configuration of local and Selwyn Lobe moraines indicates that local glaciers did not extend beyond cirques and made no contribution to Selwyn Lobe. Confirmed by character of sediments examined in sections along Little Sheep Creek and by distribution of erratics in cirque valley. Aridity limited local ice growth; large glaciers did not grow because of insufficient precipitation.
