Description Northern European ice sheet advanced during its maximum Elsterian extent to the Central and Eastern Sudetes Mts. foreland, i.e. to the Rychleby Mts. and Zlaté Hory Highlands. Glacial deposition was controlled by local morphology in this area. The following depositional environments have been identified during ongoing research in Rychleby Mts. and Zlaté Hory Highlands: subglacial environment affected by subglacial morphology and lithology (cavities infill, glacitectonite), supraglacial environment of ablation moraines, terminoglacial to proglacial outwash plains, terminoglacial fans and proglacial outwash plains.
