Midwestern streams often flow through fluvial and glaciofluvial deposits that are easily erodible, and tailwaters frequently scour substrates in an attempt to obtain a water flux - sediment load equilibrium (Kondolf 1997).
Sandy soils originate from glaciofluvial and glaciolacustrine deposits that are wide-spread in north-eastern Germany.
Settings that produce less Ideal sands that may be processed for use as proppant include younger aeolian, glaciodeltaic, and glaciofluvial environments (Hickin and others, 2010), Examples of unconsolidated frac sand from glaciofluvial deltaic and aeolian settings are known from northeastern British Columbia, Canada (Hickin and others, 2010).
