Alpine Glacier Ice sheet glacier Tide water Glacier Glacier Formation Glaciers move downhill due to the internal deformation of ice and gravity
Glacial Landscape Glaciers can move up to 20-30 meters per day The speed of glacial displacement is partly determined by friction You can tell whether glacier is dense or not by looking at its color, if it tends to be blue then this is very dense glacier.
Some estimates say that if all land ice would about to melt, sea level would rise approximately 70 meters worldwide.
When glacier ice is white, that usually means that there are many tiny air bubbles still in the ice, and that iceberg still isn't very dense.
