For example, paleosols formed in glacial deposits, such as the Sangamon paleosol in the United States and Canada (Hall 2000) and the Eemian soil in Europe (Stremme 1998), bave been important in identifying ancient surfaces and interpreting interglacial climates.
Various glacial deposits exhibit a range of properties related to their potential use and limitations for geotechnical aspects.
Harland accumulated enough data from the scientific literature to show that in the Neoproterozoic tillites, the mineral grains susceptible to magnetism had assumed a nearly horizontal orientation when the glacial deposits were formed, a clear sign that the tillites originated near the equator.

There was also a temporal study of fixed points over a day, week, month, and seasonal time scale to help isolate and statically analyze factors like weather, time of day, lake action, and pressure systems present.
