Abstract:
Within the vast bounds of geographical study the author has held two major interests, those of glacial geomorphology and the wider topic of the application of statistical techniques in geographical analysis. Through this research it has been possible to combine these two interests in a lengthy study. However, it should be noted at the outset that the thesis that follows bears little resemblance to the work that was originally intended. The work was planned to be concerned solely with an in depth quantitative analysis of drumlins with the hope of gaining insights into the fundamental problem of explaining drumlin formation. An area of Galloway in south-west Scotland was selected but initial field work revealed considerable problems in the interpretation of the glacial history of the chosen region. It rapidly became apparent that the work on drumlins could not proceed without firstly producing a satisfactory re-appraisal of that glacial history.
