ANALYSIS OF CARBONIFEROUS GLACIAL FURROWS ON DEVONIAN BEDROCK, PARANA STATE, BRAZIL; EVIDENCE FOR PALEO-TOPOGRAPHIC INFLUENCE ON FLOW
Furrow trends, bedding plane strike and dip, and elevations of furrowed surfaces were mapped and analyzed. Stereonet plots were used to determine the extent (if any) of post Paleozoic displacement and to reconstruct the original topography of the preglacial landscape. The information gathered will be used to determine the influence of the preglacial landscape on paleoglacial flow and conditions.
