An erosional process by which rocks are ripped out of the ground by glacial movement is called:
The geographical region where snow accumulates and feed the growth of a glacier is called:
the zone of accumulation
A ___________ moraine forms at the front of the glacier and marks the long-term, stationary position of the farthest advance of the glacier.
When meltwater accumulates at the base of a glacier, providing a lubricant between the underlying rock and the glacier, the glacier moves through the process called:
