Glacial Fluting near Hodgson


Glacial Fluting near HodgsonMuch of the interlake area of southern Manitoba comprises a fluted till plain. This ridge and swale topography provides an insight into which direction the glaciers flowed through the area, the riges (flutes) being parallel to ice flow. In these images the flute fields clearly indicate ice derived from the northwest. These glacial landforms are traditionally thought to be carved directly by glacial ice, however recent research suggests that they are carved by the turbulent water of sub-glacial sheet floods.
