What are drumlins, and what common untensil did Dr. Gabel say was like the shape of a drumlin?

-- Lauren Gallinger (gallinge@oswego.edu), May 02, 2001


Drumlins are smooth, streamlined hill composed of till and, in many cases , bedrock. So drumlins are also glacial deposits. In class I believe that Dr. Gabel used a Spoon to show the shape of a drumlin.

Drumlins are "large, streamlined hills of till and bedrock that parallel the direction of ice movement"--formed by continental glaciers. --p.343 Understanding the Earth
