Description :
The AA. investigate the glaciogenic deposits at various topographic settings near the terminal position of low-profile, temperate, piedmont glaciers in the southern Lake District, Chile. Features along lower positions of the slopes include glaciolacustrine sediments and large-scale thrusting. Middle slope features include low-angle subglacial thrusting of thin slices of lacustrine sediment. Upper slope features include high-angle thrusting, and lodgment and flow till. A common theme that unifies the processes represented by these features is the distribution of hydrostatic pressure.
