Teacher Joe Reilly explains that mountain glaciers—as they form, move, and transport sediment—are contemporary examples of the ways in which ice shapes a landscape. Ice flowing in the form of mountain glaciers is an important source of erosion in colder climates. Melting at the terminus of a glacier, the moving ice deposits sediment into large piles called moraines. Moraines can be composed of massive boulders, small sands, or a combination of these and other sediments. Run Time: 00:04:04
Grades 5-8 Standard D. Landforms are the result of a combination of constructive (sedimentation, volcanoes) and destructive forces (weathering and erosion).
