Glacial Geology and Geomorphology

Studies into glacial environments in terms of sediments and landforms with special relevance to the Laurentide Ice Sheet that covered most of Canada until about 10,000 years ago. Allied to this work is detailed ongoing research into subglacial environments, and subglacial landforms and landscapes. A major component is research into glacial sedimentology including the technique of micromorphology linked to glacial diamcitons (tills). This research is conducted by John Menzies.
