Total reshape

Glaciers not only transport material as they move, they also sculpt and carve away the land beneath them. Material picked up by a glacier forms moraines along the surface and sides of the glacier. As a glacier retreats, the ice literally melts away from underneath the moraines, leaving undulating fields and ridges with deposited gravel, small rocks, and sand. The landscape is drastically reshaped over hundreds or even thousands of years. This process is very visible at Skaftafell National Park during our evening walk. Take a look at this small gallery.
