5 True/False Questions
water table → a bowl shaped depression that was formed by a block of ice from a glacier and then became filled with water.
delta → is an area of land formed by the buildup of sediment at the end, or mouth of a river.
spit → is a slide of loose debris that moves as a single unit
moraine → the till that marks the farthest advance of a glacier forms a deposit.
sliding glacier movement → the weight of a glacier and heat from Earth cause ice at the bottom of a glacier to melt. A layer of water forms under the glacier, and it starts sliding along on the layer of water.
