Unformatted text preview: GY 301: Geomorphology Lab 10: Continental Glacial Geomorphology Page 1 of 5 Your Task: Tired of ice yet? Hopefully you can last for one more lab. Today you will get the opportunity to examine topographic maps that contain geomorphological features related to continental glaciers. The exercises should be able to be completed within the 2 hour lab period. The most common scale (1:24,000) will not easily fit on the small desks that we have in room 42 and today, some of the questions require you to compare maps. Once again, it might be a good idea to push a couple of desks together. Please put the desks back in rows when you are done. Outside of the normal lab session, maps are available in the storage cabinets in room 337. They are alphabetically sorted. NOTE: OUTSIDE OF NORMAL LAB HOURS (FRIDAY 12:30 PM TO 2:10 PM) WHEN WE ARE IN ROOM LSCB 042, MAPS ARE NOT TO BE REMOVED FROM LSCB 337. SOME STUDENTS HAVE REPORTED THAT MAPS ARE MISSING FROM THE CABINETS WHEN THEY COME IN ON WEEKENDS TO FINISH THE LAB. RETURN MAPS TO THE CABINETS WHEN YOU ARE DONE WITH THEM. Due Date: 5:00 PM, Friday November 13 th Problem 1: Weedsport, N.Y. 15' Quadrangle. Yet another map without a township/range grid system. There is a UTM grid, but it is hard to decipher on the map. I guess we are forced to do it the hard way. (a) There are many hills that cover the area of this quadrangle. They are composed of unsorted sediment. What glacial landform are they likely to be? _________________________________________________________ [2 points] (b) A continental glacier has produced the landforms covering this area. In what direction did the glacier travel? Cite your evidence. _____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ [3 points] (c) Is there any evidence that the terminus of the glacier was at one time located on this map?...
