Landforms of Glaciation: Work of ice

􏰃  Glaciers are “rivers” of ice which too erode the landscape by bulldozing soil and stones to expose the solid rock below.

􏰃  When glaciers moves below the mountain, it carries along rocks, sand and stones and these materials carve out deep hollows.

􏰃  As the ice melts, these hollows gets filled up with water and become beautiful lakes (called tarn or corrie lakes) in the mountains.

􏰃  The material carried by the glacier such as rocks big and small, sand and silt gets deposited. These deposits form glacial moraines.
