Alluvial fans and an outwash fan in upper Glen Roy, Lochaber
Synopsis Mapping in upper Glen Roy suggests that, contrary to recent opinion, the Turret outwash fan and a few of the alluvial fans are largely subaerial in origin. It is proposed that the outwash
Glacial geomorphology of the Creag Meagaidh Massif, Western Grampian Highlands: Implications for local glaciation and palaeoclimate during the Loch Lomond Stadial
Abstract Detailed mapping of the Creag Meagaidh massif reveals two geomorphological signatures. One suggests widespread ice retreat to a western source, while a second indicates the existence of a
Geophysical surveys of the sediments of Loch Ness, Scotland: implications for the deglaciation of the Moray Firth Ice Stream, British–Irish Ice Sheet
We present results from three geophysical campaigns using high‐resolution sub‐bottom profiling to image sediments deposited in Loch Ness, Scotland. Sonar profiles show distinct packages of sediment,
