Quick Reference

A bedded hillslope deposit made up of alternate layers of coarse rock fragments (up to 25 mm diameter) and finer material, and laid down in a periglacial environment. It is probably formed by a combination of frost wedging, gelifluction, and the action of meltwater derived from the thawing of frozen ground.
