Abstract

The last glacial event in the Saint Godefroi area (Gaspé Peninsula) was a glacier from the southeast that was flowing towards the northwest before it stopped at the margin of the Saint Jogues Plateau. This interpretation is based on the following features: distribution of erratic boulders, till fabrics, a frontal moraine, and an outwash plain turned towards north. According to the study of the area located to the south of the Baie des Chaleurs, the glacier probably flowed at the beginning of the late Wisconsinan and disappeared before 14 000 years BP.
