*Glacier deposition occurs when ice melts.* Citations/ References -Drumlins are formed of till. -Glaciers carve or sculpt away the land beneath
them. -Glaciers cover about 10% of the land surface on
-Moraine forms where a glacier deposits mounds or
ridges of till. -When glaciers melt, it deposits the sediment it erodes from the land, creating various landforms. -Ice sliding over a moraine may shape into a drumlin. -Other features in a glacial sediments are prairie pothole. *Padilla, Michael, and Loannis Miaoulis,
