Mosedale is located at Wasdale Head in the western Lake District, NW England. This virtual field trip provides an opportunity to walk along the eastern side of Mosedale and up through Black Sail Pass, with views down into Ennerdale to the north. Younger Dryas moraines in Mosedale and Ennerdale can be seen, but only from a distance. However, a range of valley side and valley floor features are clearly visible, including talus and debris flow tracks.
The imagery was acquired in May 2017. This virtual field trip may be extended if time and finances allow.
The field area is discussed in Chapter 14 in the following publication: McDougall, D.A. and Evans, D.J.A. (eds) (2015) The Quaternary of the Lake District: Field Guide. Quaternary Research Association, London.
In order to support the ongoing development of this site, it would be really helpful if you could let me know why and how you use the resource. I’d also appreciate hearing any ideas you may have for improvements. Thank you!
This website allows you to explore glaciers and glaciated landscapes using virtual field trips. High quality, 360 degree interactive panoramas (panospheres) allow you to look all around and zoom in on features of interest – a bit like Google Streetview ©.
