Transport This is the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska.
Depositional Landform Columbia Glacier, Alaska
Pennine Hills, northern England
Mount Rainier, Pacific Northwest, USA
Near Loch Corrib, County Galway, Ireland
Fluvio-glacial landforms of Deposition Iceland
North of Lucerne Switzerland Sawtooth Lake, Canadian Arctic
……. Are built where a river builds a delta as it leaves a glacier. After the ice melts the delta is left behind as a mound. Greenland
Northwest Territories, Canada
near Dorback Lodge, developed in thick meltwater deposits and set within a series of moraine ridges Cairngorms
ODD ONE OUT … what is it?
Landforms Resulting from Fluvio Glacial Deposition What happens when the glacier melts?
How The Last Ice Age Shaped Canada. What Were The Ice Ages? The Ice Ages began 2.4 million years ago and lasted until 12,500 years ago. Glacials: cold.
Glacial Erosion and Deposition. Erosion Glaciers have the capacity to carry huge rocks and piles of debris over large distances They grind out parallel.
Continental Claciation Slide presentation. Continental Glacier.
WHAT DO YOU ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THEM ? ANSWER TRUE OR FALSE.
Geologic Features of Glaciation. Horn Mountain peak formed by glacial erosion.
Glaciers & Erosion. Glaciers: What are they? very powerful agent of erosion mass of moving ice How are glaciers formed? when snow and ice accumulate to.
Glaciers Chapter 3 Section 4 Pages Objective: Describe the causes and types of glaciers, how they impact land features, and analyze their role.
Glacial Landscapes Glacier = large moving mass of ice. Glacier = large moving mass of ice. Glaciers erode, transport and deposit massive amount of sediment.
Canadian Landforms. Types of Landforms Canada is made up of three distinct types of landforms: The Canadian Shield Lowlands Highlands.
Class 8b: Desert and glacial landforms. Desert landforms Tend to be stark, barren (not much soil)
Look at the following pictures of landforms. In the margin of your paper, explain how you think those landforms were made.

“RIVERS OF ICE” Mass movement of frozen ice on land Form at high latitude or high elevation Last extension of ice here began 20,000 years ago and receded.
LEQ: How do erosion and deposition affect Earth’s surface? TYPES OF LANDFORMS CAUSED BY EROSION & DEPOSITION.
Fluvio-Glacial Landforms. Fluvio-glacial landforms are landforms molded by glacial meltwater. There are 2 main fluvio-glacial features; 1)Outwash Plains.
Erosion and Deposition Glaciers ● Glacier - a large mass of ice that moves over land ● Alpine glaciers – occur in mountain and are erosional ● Continental.
A Closer Look at the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Lowlands.
23.4 Glaciers and Wind This valley glacier has bands that look like ripples. The dark bands, which include rock debris, show the glacier’s slower growth.
Landforms of Deposition Key Idea: Distinctive landforms result from different processes. Specification Focus: Landforms resulting from transportation and.
CHAPTER 7.1B GLACIERS. LANDFORMS CREATED BY GLACIAL EROSION Glaciers produce things like glacial troughs, hanging valleys, cirques, aretes, and horns.
Glaciers. Geologists define a glacier as any large mass of ice that moves slowly over land. There are two types of glaciers: Continental glaciers Valley.
What happens to the eroded debris? Glaciers pick up and transport a huge load of debris as they slowly advance across the land. Ultimately, these materials.
Glacial Landforms 1.Alpine erosional landforms 2.Alpine depositional landforms 3.Continental glacial landforms (erosional and depositional.

Glacial Erosion. Definition of a Glacier A glacier is a large mass of ice that moves slowly over land (a river of ice).
How do Glaciers affect the land? WED V17. What is a glacier? 0 A large, long-lasting mass of ice which forms on land and moves downslope because of gravity.
