This field guide focuses on glacial history, dynamics and processes, and postglacial landscape adjustments in the southern Fraser Plateau region. Located between the Coast and Columbia Mountains in south-central British Columbia, Canada, the southern Fraser Plateau was near the geographic center of the last (marine oxygen isotope stage [MIS] 2) Cordilleran Ice Sheet (CIS). The transition from cold to warm-based ice during MIS 2 is recorded in till sedimentology and structural geology. The perceived absence of large deglacial recessional moraines has been used as evidence that ice regionally stagnated because of a rapid rise in equilibrium line altitude. However,...
