The Lithological Characteristics of the Glacial Deposits of County Longford

T. Finch

Abstract


A preliminary examination of the glacial geology of Co. Longford is presented. Four lithologically distinct facies of diamicton and three associated glaciofluvial members are examined in terms of their petrographic composition. The units are then interpreted with reference to direction of ice movement, nature of deglaciation and bedrock geology.
