A deposit of clay, sand, and gravel, without lamination, formed in a glacier valley by means of the waters derived from the melting glaciers; -- sometimes applied to alluvium of an upper river terrace, when not laminated, and appearing as if formed in the same manner.
An unstratified or crudely stratified glacial deposit consisting of a stiff matrix of fine rock fragments and and old soil containing sub-angular stones of various sizes and composition, many of which may be striated (scratched). It forms a mantle from less than 1 m to over 100 m in thickness covering areas which carried an ice sheet or glaciers during the Pleistocene and Holocene periods.
any sediment that is transported and deposited by a glacier without being sorted by meltwater. It consists of clay, sand and large rock fragments that are deposited in irregular sheets or in ridges called moraines.
Dominantly unsorted and unstratified drift, generally unconsolidated deposited directly by and underneath a glacier without subsequent reworking by meltwater, and consisting of a hetergeneous mixture of clay, silt, sand, gravel, stones, and boulders.
Dense heterogeneous mixture of fine-grained and coarse-grained material of glacial origin and compaction. It often contains significant quantities of boulders and cobbles. See Glacial Till and Hardpan.
(or "glacial till"): Deposits of a glacier - usually described as massive (not layered), poorly-sorted, and composed of multiple types of angular to sub-rounded rocks, but varying greatly with source material.
An unsorted and unstratified accumulation of glacial sediment, deposited directly by glacier ice. Till is a heterogeneous mixture of different sized material deposited by moving ice (lodgement till) or by the melting in-place of stagnant ice (ablation till). After deposition, some tills are reworked by water.
A glacial deposit, consisting of a wide range of sizes of chunks of rock and fine-grained, throughly-ground-up rock-flour, that ultimately lithifies to form a consolidated, poorly-sorted rock. It is a sediment laid down by glacial ice, without the intervention of water.
that part of a glacial drift consisting of material deposited by and underneath the ice, with little or no transportation and sorting by water. It is generally unstratified, unconsolidated heterogeneous mixture of clay, sand, gravel and boulders.
Unsorted sediment deposited directly from glacier ice with little or no reworking by meltwater or mass movement. Usually contains particles ranging in size from clay to boulders, and may be partially consolidated depending on the geologic history. See: mudflow
general term refering to any kind of sediment deposited directly from glacier ice with little or no influence by running water; typically unstratified and unsorted; sometimes called boulder-clay. May originate in various manners: lodgement (basal) till is deposited below active ice, ablation till is let down to the ground by melting of stagnant ice, and flow till forms as mudflows off the edge of stagnant ice.
The till is where cash accepted from a customer is placed. In a restaurant using ‘server-banking', the till could be the server's apron pocket. In ‘cashiering', it could be the insert the goes inside of the cash-drawer.
