GM8.3/SSP3.1.15Submarine Geomorphology of Glaciated Continental Shelves and Slopes (co-organized)
|Convener: Stephen McCarron | Co-Conveners: Daniel Praeg , Dayton Dove|
The submarine geomorphology of glaciated continental margins is increasingly recognised to provide detailed signatures of glacial processes and ice sheet dynamics across multiple periods of glaciation. This session aims to bring together researchers working on multifaceted datasets (single beam and multibeam bathymetry, 2D/3D seismic reflection data, sediment cores) to reconstruct landform creating processes in subglacial to ice marginal environments that are now submarine, and their implications for glacial history of these regions. A clearer picture of the timing and pattern of ice sheet interactions with the oceans on continental margins serves as a critical test of ice sheet models.
