The shear zone in diamicton
will "get lost"; it will diverge and only the largest particles such as gravel grains and pebbles will be oriented in shear direction.
Quoi qu'il en soit, il convient do montionner qu'au cap Colombier, nous n'avons pas observe de diamicton
dans la terrasse en bordure du rivage; les cailloux proviennent visiblement do l'argile.
2a,b) two relatively thin layers were recorded throughout the Voka Klint Bay, interpreted in the drilling report as diamicton
The EHO is a diamicton
at the base and fines upwards to the contact with the overlying gyttja.
in unit 1 was deposited as a series of sediment gravity flows, whereas that in unit 2 was formed as ablation till.
The compact diamicton
directly overlies bedrock on the base of the ancient valleys.
The flows originated on a north-facing slope in which bedrock is overlain by a compact glacial diamicton
and fluvial sand and gravel.
Apparently, the margin of the receding glacier was thin and poorly saturated with diamicton
Two types of diamicton
are contained within the sample.
, a glacial geology term, refers to unsorted or poorly sorted deposits that are massive to crudely stratified and consist of a poorly sorted matrix with large clasts (< 2 mm) dispersed throughout.
is a coarsening upward sequence.
It indicated 4 m of colluvium and/or sand diamicton
overlying highly broken granodiorite to 52 m depth.
