Description

This book examines the processes and patterns of glacier-sedimentation on high-latitude continental margins and the geophysical and geological signatures of the resulting sediments and landforms. It contains a range of papers concerning modern and ancient glacially-influenced sedimentation in high-latitude areas from both hemispheres, many of which discuss the relationship between glacier dynamics and the sediments and landform preserved in the glacimarine environment.

Contents

Large-scale morphology of Arctic continental slopes: the influence of sediment delivery on slope form • On the architecture of high-latitude continental margins: the influence of ice-sheet and sea-ice processes in the Polar North Atlantic • Late Quaternary architecture of trough mouth fans: debris flows and suspended sediments on the Norwegian margin • Submarine mass-wasting on glacially-influenced continental slopes: processes and dynamics • Experimental constraints on shear mixing rates and processes: implications for the dilution of submarine debris flows • Late Oligocene and early Miocene glacimarine sedimentation in the SW Ross Sea, Antarctica: the record from offshore drilling • Late Pleistocene glacially-influenced deep-marine sedimentation off NW Britain: implications for the rock record • Late Quaternary sedimentation in Kejser Franz Joseph Fjord and the continental margin of east Greenland • Contrasting glasical sedimentation processes and sea-level changes in two adjacent basins on the pacific margin of Canada • Developing high-resolution chronologies in glacimarine sediments: examples from southeastern Alaska • A glacial sequence stratigraphic model for temperate, glaciated continental shelves • Large-scale morphological evidence for past ice-stream flow on the mid-Norwegian continental margin • Geomorphology of buried glacigenic horizons in the Barents Sea from 3-dimensional seismic data • Retreat signature of a Polar Ice Stream: sub-glacial geomorphic features and sediments from the Ross Sea, Antarctica • Grain-size characteristics and provenance of ice-proximal glacial marine sediments (or why do grain-size analyses anyway?) • Sediment reworking on high-latitude continental margins and its implications for palaeoceanographic studies: insignts from the Norwegian-Greenland Sea • Millennial and sub-milllennial-scale variability in sediment colour from the Barra Fan, NW Scotland: implications for British ice sheet dynamics • Observations of surge periodicity in East Greenland using Molybdenum records from marine sediment cores
