Quaternary Glacial Geomorphology and Sedimentology of the Cantabrian Mountains, Northern Spain

This study investigates the genesis of late Quaternary glacial and paraglacial landforms in the Cantabrian Mountains of northern Spain. Using till macrofabric and grain size analysis, this research tries to identify till types present in moraines and other glacial and paraglacial landforms in order to determine their depositional environment and landform classification. Basically, this research focuses on reconstructing paleo-glacial/paraglacial processes.
