Glacial erratics are not endemic to North America: a Flyttblock at Surte, Västra Götaland, Sweden

Origin/Speculation[edit]

Regarding today's edits, no modern source would call the glacial origin of erratics speculative. Webster's dictionary, The Glossary of Geology, Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, Encyclopedia International, World Book Encyclopedia, and all modern geological texts (e.g., Earth, by Press & Sevier; The Earth, by Tarbuck & Lutgens; and many many more - those are all I had at hand to check) all support the phraseology as "fact."

I concur....everything I ever learned when studying geology was that the erratics were moved by glacial action...hence the title of the article "Glacial erratic".--MONGO 05:29, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
I've added an image here, to be used when there is enough text to carry it. --Wetman (talk) 03:52, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

More images...[edit]

I'll leave these here in case anyone wants to change out the images in the article. I notices there was a lack of high-resolution images. ---J.S (T/C/WRE) 21:23, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
