Glacial ice covered Lithuania several times, and glacial deposits
are distributed on the entire surface of Lithuania.
At that time glacial deposits
in northeastern Illinois were breached, causing a great flood known as the Kankakee Torrent.
However, the third dimension of glacial deposits
cannot be mapped by conventional geological methods; expensive drilling and geophysical techniques must be used." In this light, the Central Great Lakes Geologic Mapping Coalition -- composed of the USGS and the state geological surveys of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio -- is conducting a three-year pilot study during which 11 areas will be mapped, including Akron-Canton, Ohio; Illinois River Valley, Ill.; Allen County, Ind.; and Berrien County, Mich.
No glacial deposit
, not a single stone transported by ice, has ever been recorded on or near Salisbury Plain, either in a natural context or incorporated into a building or a field boundary.
Following widespread dismissal of Agassiz's controversial claim to have discovered glacial deposits
in the Amazon in 1866, the idea fell out of favour.
Older glacial deposits
such as Illinoian tills typically have higher hydraulic conductivities than younger deposits such as Wisconsinan tills.
The April Trend is entirely covered by glacial deposits
and has not previously been tested by diamond drilling.
are either Late Wisconsinan (13,000 to 24,000 years ago) or Illinoian (130,000 to 191,000 years ago) in age.
Bedrock is up to 300 ft below glacial deposits
. The dominant unit mapped is a drumlinized diamicton correlated to the Two Rivers glacial advance.
Some white lines which overlap the rocks point to calcite rocks, which are relatively common calcium carbonate, towards the west of Al Ghubra village, 5 kilometers from the oldest residues of some of the glacial deposits
Radon typically is associated with fractured igneous and meta-igneous rocks, clay-rich glacial deposits
, marine shale, carbonate soils, and uranium-bearing river and marine sediments (Gundersen et al., 1992).
