Restored article. Don't delete existig information just to create a disamb. page. See Till (disambiguation) for other uses. It appears that all of the links to this page are referring to the glaciological use. Vsmith 12:50, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Types of till could do with a bit of a re wording, I wrote it, but I think it might be a bit too technical, what do others think? --Cyr 10:33, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

It is a bit on the technical end - and maybe outdated? as you mention - I'm not familiar with the references, could we have bibliographic info in a references section? Vsmith 12:28, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

I doubt there is any such thing as a "till ball." I will have to do more research. In any case, it is interesting to see just how many other sites have lifted this "fact" from this single page. [WAlberg] 16:49, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Till balls do exist; the Glossary of Geology defines them as armored mud balls whose cores are made of till. --Geologyguy 20:06, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Glacial till deposits inside glacier close to bedrock where under extreme pressure ice behaves more like fluid-it


flows,erodes bedrock,picks up material and accumulates it.When certain amount of material becames mixed within ice it looses


its "fluidity" resulting in ice which contains layers of glacial material-this layer moves slower than rest of the ice and


gets deposited,usually it contains elongated pebbles long axis showing direction of ice flow.In glaciology measuring


direction and angle of these pebbles can provide a lot of information about stresses and forces inside glacier during the time it deposited the material.After ice melts glacial till may become transported by water-then material gets deposited and sorted depending size of particles or strength of the stream,during that the pebbles will loose characteristic orientation they had when deposited by glacier.--tomato 23:22, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Proposal to merge 'Boulder Clay' with 'Till'[edit]

I'd suggest that the page Boulder Clay be merged with this article as the two amount to pretty much the same thing. Geopersona (talk) 21:59, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
