Abstract

Glacial deposits are increasingly entering into consideration in engineering projects, soil surveys, ground-water supply, sources for industrial materials, and other economic enterprises. In the field of en­gineering, glacial deposits if present must be consider­ed in connection with reservoir sites, dam or bridge abutments, road building, and other types of construction work.
