Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Glaciated coasts encompass all those that are now affected by glacial ice or have been at some time since the Last Glacial Maximum. Glacial coasts are the tidewater ice margins of ice sheets, ice shelves, and outlet glaciers. Proglacial coasts are those that are actively receiving outwash sediment. Paraglacial coasts are those in which the coastal evolution is strongly influenced by the effects of past glaciation, most importantly through the dominance of sediment supply from glacigenic deposits by fluvial or coastal reworking. The coastal geomorphology in paraglacial settings may be strongly influenced by the topographic imprint of glacial erosion, and by the distribution and availability of glacigenic deposits.
