Glaciers By: Kila White

A Large, moving mass of ice is called a glacier.

How do Glaciers move?The sheer weight of a thick layer of ice and the fact that it deforms as a "plastic" material, combined with gravity's influence, causes glaciers to flow very slowly.

What is the difference between a Continental glacier and a Valley glacier?Valley glaciers travel down between the mountain ridges, these glaciers carry rock debris with them as they move.Continental glaciers smooth the landscape by scrapingand eroding features that existed before the iceappeared.
