Front Cover
The glaciated upper catchment of the Megas Laccos Gorge draining into the Vikos Gorge on Mount Tymphi, in the Pindus Mountains, Greece (photograph taken in May 2002). An ice field formed in the upper mountain area, where the highest peaks reach an altitude of over 2400 m. An outlet glacier flowed down this valley depositing diamicton deposits of the Megas Laccos Member. These deposits formed during the Skamnellian Stage of the Middle Pleistocene.
