Glacier Discovered!

Glacier Technical Terms

Glacier: a) A large mass of ice formed, at least in part, on land by the compaction and recrystallization of snow, moving slowly by creep downslope or outward in all directions due to the stress of its own weight, and surviving from year to year. Included are small mountain glaciers as well as ice sheets continental in size, and ice shelves which float on the ocean but are fed in part by ice formed on land. b) A stream-like landform having the appearance of, or moving like a glacier; e.g. a rock glacier. Compare – snowfield, rock glacier. GG
