Glacimarine Environments

Research into the glacimarine environment takes place in the Scott Polar Research Institute. Research focuses on modern processes of sediment transport, delivery and sedimentation in the glacier-influenced marine system on modern high-latitude margins, and on the geological and geomorphological products and record of these processes. A major aim is the reconstruction of the form and flow of past ice sheets from the well-preserved geological record in Arctic and Antarctic fjords, on high-latitude continental shelves and on the continental slopes and deep basins beyond.

Research projects

Research projects currently being undertaken on this theme include:

Atlas of submarine glacial landforms: Modern, quaternary and ancient

Atlas of submarine glacial landforms: Modern, quaternary and ancient

The Atlas of Submarine Glacial Landforms presents a comprehensive series of contributions by leading researchers from many countries that describe, discuss and illustrate landforms on the high latitude, glacier-influenced sea floor. Included are submarine glacial landforms from modern, Quaternary and ancient glacimarine environments.
