Abstract/Summary

Principal component analysis of high-density, regional soil geochemical data was used to reveal element associations within Mid-Pleistocene glacigenic till deposits across Central and Eastern England. Results have helped to characterise tills by their geochemical composition at a regional scale, leading to a better understanding of, (i) which parent materials tills have been derived from, (ii) sediment transportation paths and flow trajectories of the British Ice Sheet, and (iii) the evolution of the British Ice Sheet during the Mid-Pleistocene.
