Kettle Holes

  • R. P. K. Clark (a1)

Abstract

An alternative origin and significance for kettle holes is considered. Kettles among some kame tracts may be due not to melt of buried ice but rather represent the location of ice pillars or roof pendants among stratified subglacial deposits.

Résumé

On considère une autre origine et signification pour marmites de glacier. Les marmites parmi quelques traces de “Kame” ne pourraient être dues à la fonte de glace ensevelie mais représentent plutôt la position de colonnes de glace ou de pendants de toits au milieu des dépôts sous-glaciaires stratifiés.

Zusammenfassung

Für Sölle wird eine andersartige Entstehung und Bedeutung erwogen. Kessel in einigen Kames-Feldern sind eventuell nicht auf das Schmelzen verschütteten Eises zurückzuführen sondern kennzeichnen eher die Lage von Eissäulen oder Dachgehängen innerhalb der geschichteten Grundmoräne.
