This dataset is a complete coverage of mapped and digitized ice-marginal deglacial landforms for Ireland.

This dataset forms part of the Quaternary geology of Ireland – Geomorphology Map which is a representation of Irish glacial geomorphological features at a scale of 1 to 50,000. The map shows categorised erratic carriage sources and sinks, subglacial lineations and striae, subglacial moraines, ice-marginal landforms and mountain glaciation corries and trimlines.

The Geomorphology dataset originally comprised individual feature layers that were subsequently merged into 9 sub-groups. Deglacial Landforms is one of the subgroups.The Deglacial Landforms data layer is comprised of the following geomorphological features: 1) Deltas; 2) Fans; 3) Glaciofluvial Terraces; 4) Hummocky Moraines; 5) Hummocky Sand and Gravels; 6) Kame Terraces; 7) Moraine Ridges.Data recorded on the map includes the location and outline of the following geomorphological features: 1) Deltas: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized locations of delta sediment bodies for Ireland including name of the landform, background data source and a reference to previous work completed on the feature. 2) Fans: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized fan features for Ireland including name of the landform and background data source. 3) Glaciofluvial Terraces: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized glaciofluvial terraces for Ireland including the the name of the river system they are associated with and background data source.4) Hummocky Moraines: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized hummocky moraine (non-stratified) features for Ireland including background data source and a reference to previous work completed on the feature. 5) Hummocky Sand and Gravels: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized hummocky sand and gravel features for Ireland including background data source. 6) Kame Terraces: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized locations of Kame Terraces including name of the landform, background data source and a reference to previous work completed on the feature.7) Moraine Ridges: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized locations of Moraine Ridges for Ireland including background data source.
