AbstractThe glacial landscape of northeastern Manitoba is characterized by a fragmented subglacial landform record and a complex ice flow indicator record which together provide complimentary information critical to ice sheet reconstruction. An integrated analysis suggests the glacial landscape is best described as a mosaic of distinct and non-coeval glacial terrain zones (GTZ). Our data suggests that areas near the Keewatin Sector of the Laurentide Ice Sheet were subject to spatially and temporally variable basal thermal regimes and intensities of erosion/transportation/deposition. Due to variable degrees of inheritance and overprinting the resulting glacial landscape can be used to reconstruct a long glacial history in this region of predominately low erosion.
