Further, sedimentary features that could only form in open water (for example: wave-formed ripples, far-traveled ice-rafted debris and indicators of photosynthetic activity) can be found throughout sediments dating from the snowball-Earth periods. While these may represent "oases" of meltwater on a completely frozen Earth, ...

These southeasterly trending ... exposes the Blackfoot River's glacial lake delta. Numerous drop- stones reveal the proximity of Clearwater ice which advanced into the lake from the northwest.
In these cases the type of sculpture is associated with the erosion of a valley which has been at one time filled with non-resistant Tertiary sediments. Farther up-stream, however, a modified form of this sculpture is apparent where the ice has overridden the end of the spur between the Macaulay and the main valley, the rock ...
