Mega-scale glacial lineations, Peel Sound, Canadian Arctic Archipelago

Academic Article


  • The presence of streamlined glacial landforms in the submarine geological record from high-latitude fjords and channels provides evidence with which to identify the manner and direction of glacier flow and to infer subglacial processes. Numerous linear and curvilinear elongate features extending up to 15 km in length have been recognized in Peel Sound, Canadian Arctic Archipelago. These well-preserved sedimentary landforms reflect the former presence of a fast-flowing ice stream that flowed through Franklin Strait and Peel Sound.
