The cross section of the Feggeklit coast profile in the western Limfjord region, northern Denmark, is selected to demonstrate the principles for glaciotectonic and glaciodynamic classification. The Feggeklit profile displays glaciotectonically folded, thrust-faulted and sheared Paleogene diatomite with thin volcanic ash layers overlain by a glacigene sequence. Besides the pre-Quaternary sediments, the depositional events include three tills, meltwater sand and gravel, and a glaciolacustrine unit. The deformation of the sediments was caused by two glacial tectonic mechanisms: proglacial gravity-spreading deformation, and subglacial cataclastic shearing. -from Author
