Sediment-landform associations of major glaciations in the North Alpine Foreland
Guide: Bernhard Salcher

The North Alpine Foreland was repeatedly covered by massive piedmont during at least four Quaternary glacial maxima. The easternmost of these alpine foreland glaciers, the Salzach glacier lobe expanded to more the 1000 km². The deposited sediments show extraordinary preservation which relate to the classical “Günz, Mindel, Riss and Würm” glaciation. This field trip to the deposits of the former Salzach glacier lobe, highlights some exceptional sediment-landform associations over these glacial maxima, providing insights into the glacial dynamics and the glaciofluvial impact of such a major lobe.
