GLOSSARY OF GLACIAL VARVES, GLACIAL LAKES, AND RELATED ENVIRONMENTS
Note: Many terms are only defined as they apply to varves and varve deposition. Some terms may have more general definitions when applied to a broader range of topics. The definitions follow the usage of terms on the North American Glacial Varve Project web site: http://eos.tufts.edu/varves. In some cases new terms have been introduced. Some entries are keyed to contrasting or related entries in the glossary that may help give a fuller understanding of terminology.
