... mountain glaciers. Present-day floes of this type originate only by detachment from polar ice packs. But such ice floes could result if a glacial valley was flooded and the tongue of a glacier floated. Such a mechanism, in which a great tide inundated the "Calgary River" valley, could have produced...

... conclusion as to cause other than wind-blown ice floes dragging protruding stones. Ice ramparts and other evidence indicate longshore shearing motion, feasible for ice floes but impossible for ice shove by thermal expansion. The writer finds no evidence that stones, freely wind blown, have made tracks...

..., as suggested by Buffington, Carsola, and Dietz ( 1950 , pp. 11–14) and others before them. These authors describe a sample taken from an ice-floe at 71° 49ʹ N., 162° 23ʹ W., about 100 miles west of Point Barrow. The gently undulating surface of the ice-floe from which the sample was taken was impregnated...

... in February–March 1995 ( Fig. 4A ) to cause the water surface to locally exceed bankfull at PR125 (and also at PR120). This backwater deposited ice floes and associated sediment on the floodplain (stacks of ice floes on the floodplain complicated the resurveying of the March 1995 surface). Local ice-jam...

...) . This glaciotectonic origin was favoured by Francis (1992) . The observations above indicate that there is no justification for interpreting the basin-fill sequence as having resulted from transportation of a coherent, single, nappe- or floe-like block inclusion by the Lowestoft glaciation ice, as favoured...

.... How zonal circulation is modified into cellular circulation is explained in the following section. According to an account by Perry and Walker (1977) , in 1902, Fridtjof Nansen published a paper in which he described the motion of ice floes blown over the surface of the sea by winds. Nansen...

...: (a) Any ice that has broken apart and drifted from its place of origin by winds and currents, such as a fragment of a sea-ice floe or a detached iceberg; loose, unattached pieces of floating ice with open water predominating over ice and navigable with ease.

... segments when a broad ice floe meets with obstructions in the form of islands or shore irregularities. These movements were accompanied by long horizontal faulting which divided the main mass into long east-west segments and by minor folding east of the resisting mass and finally by extensive off-sets...

... An origin by inheritance depends only on the availability of a mineral in the parent or source material and the physical processes by which clay minerals may be transported or accumulate. There are therefore an infinite number of pathways by which clay minerals may be inherited by the weathering...

Glacial materials again separate the highly disturbed masses or floes (Schollen) of Lower Maastrichtian chalk (Weisse Schreibkreide) ( Steinich, 1972 ; Surlyk, 1984 ; Herrig, 1995 ). A general view is shown in Figure 33...

... in the flocculation of clay suspended in the water. This results in the deposition of clay floes on entry to the sea. Worrall (1982) explains that deflocculation of a clay with adsorbed Ca can be achieved by replacing this cation with Na. In practice, it is also necessary for the Ca to be removed from the system...
