Abstract

Drumlins are formed in a layer of boulder clay separating a glacier from certain types of terrain. Under certain conditions the large particles in the clay form a dilatant system. When flow in the separating layer is interrupted, part of the layer packs into an obstruction and the rest of the material flows around this obstruction, giving it a streamlined form.
