    A glacial erratic is a piece of rock that differs from the size and type of rock native to the area in which it rests. "Erratics" take their name from the Latin word errare (to wander), and are carried by glacial ice, often over distances of hundreds of cs can range in size from pebbles to large boulders such as Big Rock (15, tonnes or 17, short tons) in Alberta. "Glacial" and "Glaciation" redirect here. For the geological periods, see glacial period. For the story by Alastair Reynolds, see Glacial (short story). A glacier is a large, slow-moving mass of ice, formed from compacted layers of snow, that slowly deforms and flows in response to gravity and high pressure. The word glacier comes from French via the Vulgar Latin glacia, and ultimately from.

The glacial deposits of the Galahad-Hardisty district and adjacent districts to the north and south--the Sedgewick and Alliance-Brownfield districts, respectively, were developed from stagnant ice.

David J.A.

We use the term "principles" because the fundamental processes and their effects are the major focus of the book, rather than detailed analysis of any particular region or environment.5/5(1).

The Canadian shield, Precambrian shield, makes up the bedrock geology highlighted by rocks and lakes and a boreal forest area. There are transitional areas between boreal and tundra flora. The lower boundary of the Canadian Shield cuts across the province diagonally from the latitude 57 degrees in the north west to 54 degrees in the south east.

Three orogenies formed the Precambrian shield. Edmonton sits on strata deposited by various geological processes. One of the oldest layers is likely the massively-eroded Precambrian margin of the Canadian Shield.

The next - oldest layer is Paleozoic. During this era continental drift took Alberta to a warm, sunny location somewhere between latitudes 30° north and 30° south. This investigation was prompted by an enigmatic ice-flow anomaly (Area A) on the Glacial Map of Canada which covers about 10 km² in the Hearst/Kapuskasing area of northeastern Ontario.

Alliance is a village in central Alberta, Canada.

The Drumheller area of central Alberta covers about 6, square miles directly northeast of Calgary.

Although the Rocky Mountain Foothills are nearby, only the most westerly parts of the area were affected by Cordilleran glaciers. Laurentide glaciers, on the other hand, strongly glaciated the whole area several times during the Quaternary Period.

The absence of igneous and metamorphic clasts of Canadian Shield origin in the Saskatchewan gravels and sands (preglacial) valley fills in seven active gravel pits studied over a 5 yr period, coupled with 29 radiocarbon dates (21, yr B.P.), suggest that Laurentide glaciation prior to the late Wisconsin did not reach the Edmonton area.

Geologic History The landscape of northern Alberta and the underlying mineral formations are the result of millions of years of geologic events. The periodic inundation and retreat of ocean waters over present-day Alberta has been one of the most influential processes on Alberta’s geology.

A glacier (US: / ˈ ɡ l eɪ ʃ ər / or UK: / ˈ ɡ l æ s i ər, ˈ ɡ l eɪ s i ər /) is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight. A glacier forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often rs slowly deform and flow under stresses induced by their weight, creating crevasses.
