Young rivers erode the rock and soil quickly in order to achieve equilibrium between the altitude of their headwaters and their final expulsion at sea level. Glaciers primarily erode through plucking and abrasion. Plucking occurs as a glacier flows over bedrock, softening and lifting blocks of rock that are brought into the ice. The intense pressure at the base of the glacier causes some of the ice to melt, forming a thin layer of subglacial water. This water flows into cracks in the bedrock. As the glaciers expand, due to their accumulating weight of snow and ice they crush and abrade and scour surfaces such as rocks and bedrock.The resulting erosional landforms include striations, cirques, glacial horns, arêtes, trim lines, U-shaped valleys, roches moutonnées, overdeepenings and hanging valleys.

Most glacial troughs start out as v-shaped valleys. When the landscape becomes glaciated, individual glaciers occupy them eroding them by abrasion to form a u-shaped valley. Glaciers are different from the other agents of erosion and landscape formation in that they Sediment deposited by meltwater beyond the terminus of a glacier or in tunnels beneath it is called glaciers erode at all places in the valleys, not just where the stream channel had been V shaped stream carved valleys reshaped by mountain glaciers are typically U shaped because How do glaciers erode the land? When gravity causes ice to move down the side of a mountain there are two ways in which the rock below is eroded. These are plucking and abrasion . "How Does a Glacier Erode the Landcape?" is part of the Glaciology In a Minute series.

When water enters into the crack and then at night when the water freezes within it breaks the rock. Glaciers are solid ice that move extremely slowly along the land surface. They erode and shape the underlying rocks.

"Erratics" take their name from the Latin word errare (to wander), and are carried by glacial ice, often over distances of hundreds of kilometres. Glaciers are a big item when we talk about the world's water supply. Almost 10 percent of the world's land mass is currently covered with glaciers, mostly in places like Greenland and Antarctica. You can think of a glacier as a frozen river, and like rivers, they "flow" downhill, erode the landscape, and move water along in the Earth's water cycle. Via glacial erosion and glacial deposition. Any large mass of ice that moves slowly over land is an.
