Abstract: Field analysis of included quantification of clast rounding and lithology, and weathering features such as tafoni, elongated pitting, sand accumulations, frost shattering, glacial polish, and the degree of weathering based on the Moriwaki et. al. 1991 and 1994 scheme. Schmidt hammer tests on boulders were undertaken at approximately 30 sites.

Approximately 200 sediment (predominantly glacial but ... View entire text

Quality Cosmogenic Exposure Age samples were collected from glacial erratics and glacially eroded bedrock. Small, glacially rounded and striated samples on stable bedrock sites with little shielding were favoured. Where it occured, shielding was constrained using a sighting clinometer ( 1 degree) and compass ( 2 degrees) at each break in slope. Photographs were taken to document the location of each ...
