Abstract:

The deformation of subglacial till is instrumental in causing certain glacier surges, the motion of rapid ice streams in ice sheets, and ice-sheet surges which are associated with Heinrich events, and consequent rapid climatic shifts, during the last ice age. It may also be the means whereby drumlins are formed, and these in turn may act as a brake on large-scale ice flow. It is therefore important in building models to understand the rate at which till deforms, and how this controls the basa...
