DAMN YOU! Damn you and your inquisitive, always-seeking-knowledge, nosy nature, you bipedal ape!
Here's some other cites for ya:

|The advance of Perito Moreno Glacier, a lacustrine calving glacier in Argentina, has periodically blocked a large tributary arm of the lake with dam failures there producing outburst floods that are reported to have released 3 to 4 km^3 of water http://www.uas.alaska.edu/envs....007.pdf |
(the Perito Moreno is the source of the glacier-dam flooding, it does it a LOT, but flooding didn't create the entire friggin' valley -- contrary to Austin's implications, and certainly not in his implied singular megafludde)
An interesting map, by Chucky D:

Stuff by Jorge Strelin et al, minus the material which Mr. Nosy afarensis already pointed to:

In contrast to Austin's petty, propaganda-driven bullshit faulting Darwin for not being right about the erratics (when Darwin couldn't have even known about Agassiz' "glacier theories" at the time), it's interesting to see how much he got right at that distant date, and the sheer breadth & scope of the cross-disciplinary work he did by himself.
This is really important, for people interested in such topics, as opposed to wankers like clownshoes:

Come to think of it, it might be useful for someone to notify the Pharyngula and ERV groups, etc. on these. Alas I don't have an insider pass to those folks. I am sooooo lonely :(
