Till genesis at the bed of an Antarctic Peninsula palaeo-ice stream as indicated by micromorphological analysis

first_imgSediment cores from cross-shelf troughs on the NE Antarctic Peninsula shelf recovered tills with variable shear strengths that represent different subglacial depositional regimes. In addition to detailed qualitative micromorphological descriptions, a quantitative method was applied, which revealed a higher abundance of boudins and intraclasts and a lower abundance of crushed and fractured grains in samples from the soft till compared with samples from the underlying stiff till. This is the first evidence of significant (micro-scale) differences between the two types of till and thus strengthens previous interpretations that were based primarily on shear strength. The differences between the soft and stiff till relate to a deforming continuum whereby the initial deposition of till as ice advanced across the shelf produced ductile structures before dewatering and compaction led to the formation of brittle structures such as crushed and fractured grains in the now stiff till. A change in ice-flow dynamics led to streaming flow and the deformation of the upper parts of the stiff till that was being reworked into a soft till. The soft till facilitated ice streaming, and progressive shearing led to the homogenization of the ice stream substrate, which was partially advected downstream. The resulting till thus contains poly-deformational structures, with deformation structures inherited from the stiff till being generally poorly preserved. Our micromorphological analysis of the soft till provides the first widespread sedimentological evidence of deformation across the palaeo-ice stream bed on the NE Antarctic Peninsula shelf.last_img read more

Ladies New Elegant Looped Net : Really happy with this looks very elegant

first_img Asolutely love it cant wait to wear better than the high street definately recommend will not be dissapointed fantastic price too . Just what i wanted for a wedding in may , well worth it ,. Arrived very quickly, excellent packaging. Great quality, matches just about everything. Successfully wore it to a wedding and received many compliments 🙂 definitely recommend. Centre swirl fascinator on a clip. I read other reviews for this item and having ordered and received it was certainly not disappointed. It is a well made fascinator, the colour was just what i needed and the clip fastening is wonderful when your hair is short. It is a neat, not too fussy, well made product. Wanted a little something for the founders day celebration at chelsea, and this was the ideal addition to pep-up my outfit. Big enough, but not oversized and looks more expensive than it was. Excellent price by comparison with what i had seen locally. Has a very strong clip and did not move once positioned. And when the main event was over, i clipped it to my jacket as a large broach. Other wedding guests enquired where i had bought it. Great product, arrived after couple of days after i placed the order, carefully wrapped and placed in a little box. Sits in the hair really nicely thanks to a good hair clip. I would definitely recommend this. Used at york races and was just as good as an expensive £50 one. Great item, excellent customer service. . Beautiful fascinator at a very reasonable price. My wife bought this for ladies day at leicester race course, it’s great value for money, looks exactly like the picture, said she is very pleased with it. Looked lovely, wore to a wedding in cyprus. I acquired this to don for my son’s wedding and experienced so quite a few awesome remarks about it. I have limited hair so wanted anything with a clip as an alternative of a comb or band. The clip is great for preserving it into area and you can shake your head vigorously (if you want to, at the disco) and it will not budge – bonus. It will come in a durable box (a lot more substantial than itself) but does defend from squashing. Also comes in other colours so there is a choice for other occasions. Selling price is fantastic and i will be recommending to anybody heading to a wedding ceremony and not wanting to put on a cumbersome hat.Beautiful properly produced fascinator.Just what i was hunting for. Was seriously uncomplicated to set in and stayed in all working day.Great price – excellent services. Will not bother heading to higher street suppliers to invest several hours wanting for a facinator. Acquire just one from allsorts accessories, they have a excellent selection of kinds and colors at a fraction of large avenue charges.Gorgeous won’t be able to wait to don it for my daughter’s wedding. Very pleased with it, and it doesn’t get crushed and therefore keeps its shape. Is ideal for forthcoming wedding. Good little item and well worth the money. Really happy with this looks very elegant. Really happy with this looks very elegant, stays firmly put in your hair and i do have quite fine hair. Arrived quickly, i would recommend. Very good service & very nice item. Wore the fascinator for ladies day at the races with a light pink dress and cream shoes – a very nice item wore with hair down and curly. Service was also great, left ordering the item very last minute so contacted the seller and they were very prompt to reply and made sure it was dispatched on time.
