Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Hall Peninsula, located on Baffin Island, is characterized by a bouldery cover on the plateau, and bedrock outcrops eroded by glaciers in the valleys and along the coast. The last glaciation left traces of erosion and deposits of glacial sediments (till). Regions of intense glacial activity was delimited along the coast and in the vicinity of large valleys. This report presents field measurements of glacial activity, and satellite images observations of the traces left by glaciers.
