I can visualize the entire scene--the apelike Grimaldi men huddled in their filthy caves; the huge pterodactyls soaring through the heavy air upon their bat-like wings; the mighty dinosaurs moving their clumsy hulks beneath the dark shadows of preglacial
forests--the dragons which we considered myths until science taught us that they were the true recollections of the first man, handed down through countless ages by word of mouth from father to son out of the unrecorded dawn of humanity.
The neighbourhood of the upper Thames is rich in Roman relics, and my surmise seemed to me a very probable one; but our serious young man, who is a bit of a geologist, pooh-poohed my Roman relic theory, and said it was clear to the meanest intellect (in which category he seemed to be grieved that he could not conscientiously include mine) that the thing the boy had found was the fossil of a whale; and he pointed out to us various evidences proving that it must have belonged to the preglacial
I knew that I was a good officer and sailor, and I didn't propose submitting to degradation and discharge because a lot of old, preglacial
fossils had declared over two hundred years before that no man should cross thirty.
The design did not take into account the complexity of the subglacial and preglacial
geological environment associated with the perimeter embankment foundation.

fluvial deposits in the southern part of the Upper Nysa Depression, central Sudetes Mts.
The surface was and is gently undulating or flat just as would be the case if ice were to spread over Ohio today; the deep preglacial
bedrock valleys were already filled by glacial deposits.
2]) is a highly eutrophic lake located in the southern part of Estonia in a shallow depression of preglacial
origin (Jarvet et al.
Half the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and a quarter of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet lie on preglacial
sedimentary basins containing around 21,000 billion tonnes of carbon, said the scientists, writing in the journal Nature.
1), the third largest lake (270 km2) in Eastern Europe, excluding large lakes in Russia, is situated in the Central Estonian depression of preglacial

relict species", Am.
Following Bouchard (1974) and Rampton (1982), the deposits can be separated into four general units: 1) lower marine clay, 2) "mixed" preglacial
sediments and peat, 3) marine clay, and 4) postglacial lacustrine, terrestrial, colluvial, and beach sediment.
There are around 4000 species of plants growing in the Russian Far East including cosmopolites and endemic species, relic species of the preglacial
period and relatively young species, including the alien ones.
