Glacintectonics of Belarus

Alexander K. Karabanov

Abstract


Different glaciotectonic strctures and landforms occur in the territory of Belarus: folded dislocations, glacial depressions, rafts and injective features. The largest folded glaciodislocation is 30 km long and 8-11 km wide, and glacial rafts are up to 1.5 km long and 20-25 m thick. Many glaciotectonic structures are clearly expressed in landscape. Most large folded glaciodislocations were formed during the Sozh (Warthian) Stage of tile Dnieper Glaciation.
