Abstract

Surficial geology studies, based on air photo interpretation and field data, were undertaken in the Walker Lake South map area to provide an understanding of the distribution and nature of surficial materials and regional glacial history. Much of the area is covered by till plains with shallow glacially-eroded basins; however the southeast is dominated by a bedrock highland. Striae and streamlined landforms in till indicate initial north-northeast then persistent northwestward ice flow during the last glaciation, although late-glacial flow reversals occurred to the south and east down glacial troughs in the bedrock highland. Regolith and hummocky till delineate areas of cold-based ice, and late-ice remnants in highlands. Large subglacial corridors containing eskers and other ice-contact deposits carried meltwater northward into the Arctic Ocean. South of the regional drainage divide, short-lived glacial lakes, marked by wave-cut notches and boulder lags on the till surface, developed as the ice front receded southwards into the upland south of the Ford Lake-Wager Bay lowlands. The marine limit ranges from 100-110 m asl in this area.
