AbstractElongate glacial landforms are typically orientated in the direction of ice flow (Benn & Evans 2010). They are often preserved in the submarine environment, providing information on past ice-sheet extent and flow pathways. The northeastern margin of the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) covered much of eastern Baffin and Bylot islands during the Last Glacial Maximum (Dyke et al. 2002). Numerous elongate landforms on the seafloor of Eclipse Sound and Pond Inlet indicate the direction of ice flow around Bylot Island in the Canadian Arctic.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is a contribution to an international atlas illustrating marine glacial landforms using detailed seabed imagery. This contribution focuses on elongate landforms on the seafloor of Eclipse Sound and Pond Inlet which indicate the direction of ice flow around Bylot Island in the Canadian Arctic.
