Deciphering the relationships between streamlined subglacial landforms and deposits therein helps to constrain the dynamics of past ice sheets. Here we present microstructural analyses of till from the largest drumlin field in the North European Lowland generated by a major palaeo‐ice stream of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet. Data derived from thin sections and X‐ray microtomography (μCT) reveal multiple microstructures including microshears, circular structures, grain stacks and crushed grains… 
Dynamics of the last Scandinavian Ice Sheet’s southernmost sector revealed by the pattern of ice streams
The Polish sector of the last Scandinavian Ice Sheet is a key area for studying ice‐sheet drainage and decay from its local Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) extent, as it is located at the terrestrial


Microstructural evidence of low‐strain, time‐transgressive subglacial deformation
Microstructural analyses were used to investigate the formation of a macroscale‐massive till at Knud Strand in Denmark. More than 100 thin sections were examined and microstructures mapped and
Microsedimentology of ice stream tills from the Eastern Alps, Austria – a new perspective on till microstructures
This study of tills from the Eastern Alps, Austria, illustrates the insights obtained using microsedimentology on subglacial tills in the context of palaeogeographical reconstructions of glacier
An erosional origin for drumlins of NW Poland
Drumlins are landforms essential to understanding of ice sheet movement over soft beds, sediment transport along the ice/bed interface, and the formation of a wide range of glacial deposits. Although
A multiproxy study of a basal till: a time‐transgressive accretion and deformation hypothesis
A two‐part basal till at Knud Strand, Denmark reveals a uniform fabric pattern and strength, petrographical composition and clay mineralogy. The nature of the contact with the underlying sediments,
Magnetic fabrics of drumlins of the Green Bay Lobe, southeastern Wisconsin
Characteristics of the deforming bed: till properties on the deglaciated Antarctic continental shelf
ABSTRACT Contemporary ice stream flow is directly linked to conditions at the ice/bed interface, yet this environment is logistically difficult to access. Instead, we investigate subglacial processes
