Summary
Abstract: Cenozoic bedded polymicton-type sediments within the Taylor Valley were mapped. These polymicton-type sediments are of glacial origin deposited into a body of water and therefore exhibit sorting and also contain boulders dropped from floating ice. Studies of these deposits will enable the chronology and correlation of their deposition to be extended. Silty till deposits (bedded polymictons) were ... View entire text
