Faults in glaciofluvial sediments are interpreted in the light of the experimental work of Sanford (1959). Internal displacements in the sedimentary sequence resulted from the melting of associated ice. Field examples are used to illustrate that (a) melting of a discrete buried ice mass will produce a downthrown block of sediment bounded by high-angle reverse faults that are convex upwards; (b) melting the ice walls that supported an esker of subglacial origin will result in high-angle reverse faults, concentrated in the flank of the esker, that strike parallel to the esker ridge and dip steeply in toward the esker...
