Periglacial structures in the Saskatchewan gravels and sands of central Alberta, Canada


Periglacial structures in the Saskatchewan gravels and sands of central Alberta, Canada



Journal of Geology 72(5): 641-648



ISSN/ISBN: 0022-1376

DOI: 10.2307/30059255

A gravel pit at Edmonton, Alberta exposes about 12 feet of gravel and sand beneath till deposited by Keewatin ice. The gravel and sand display irregularly involuted bedding and wedge-shaped structures at several horizons that are truncated by undisturbed overyling beds. The structures are interpreted as due to penecontemporaneous deformation by frost action in a periglacial climate prior to arrival of the Keewatin ice. The gravel and sand, therefore, are of Pleistocene age.
