Periglacial sediments: do they exist? / Jef Vandenberghe.

Title: Periglacial sediments: do they exist? / Jef Vandenberghe.
Author(s): Vandenberghe, Jef.
Date: 2011.
Publisher: London: Geological Society
In: Ice-marginal and periglacial processes and sediments. (2011.),
Abstract: Discusses use of word "periglacial", referring to synonym "cold, non-glacial", and questioning whether so-called periglacial sediments have distinct identity on basis of physico-chemical properties and structures, or are otherwise indistinguishable from other sediments. Concludes that "periglacial deposits" do not correspond to any particular sedimentary process, with the exception of some specific cases e.g. icing deposits and layers composed of frost-fragmented rock debris. Post-depositional processes are excluded.
