Record #200573:

Glacial sediments / J.M.G. Miller.

Title: Glacial sediments / J.M.G. Miller.
Author(s): Miller, J. M. G.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Oxford: Blackwell
In: Sedimentary environments : processes, facies and stratigraphy. (1996.),
Abstract: Defines disputed terms diamicton and diamictite. Describes characteristics of glaciers in terms of mass balance, thermal regime, and type; processes such as mechanics of ice flow, glacial erosion, glacial sediment transport, glacial deposition, glaciotectonism, and effects of water, wind and resedimentation; modern glacial environments and facies such as subglacial zone, supraglacial zone, ice-contact proglacial zone, glaciofluvial environments, glaciolacustrine environments, glaciomarine environments, and periglacial zone; ancient glacial facies and their characteristics, glacio-eustasy and glacio-isotasy, glacial facies zones, stratigraphic architecture, and ancient glacial facies associations. Brief mention of ice ages in earth's history.
