Associating ice plenty with the shipping and deposition of sediments has lengthy shaped a significant topic in glaciology and glacial geomorphology. the cause of this concentration is obvious, in that ice lots are chargeable for a lot of the actual panorama which characterizes the Earth's glaciated areas. This organization additionally holds at numerous scales, for instance, from the grain-size features of small-scale moraines to the structural structure of large-scale, glacigenic sedimentary sequences in either floor and subaqueous environments.
