Deposition: Once the glacial ice melts, all the load carried by glacier are deposited

ADVERTISEMENTS:

Once the glacial ice melts, all the load carried by glacier are deposited which are unassorted and unstratified mixture of boulder and fine debris.

These are called ’till’ and the rock formed by consolidation of till is known as tillite. While moving, glaciers deposit the excess load on the sides and at the ground.

These are moraines. The deposits made on the ground or bed rock are ground moraine and along the sides are lateral moraines. The moraine formed at the junction of two glaciers is known as medial moraine. At the end, when the glacial ice melts the transported load is finally deposited forming terminal moraine or end moraine. Recessional moraine marks a series of end moraines formed by pulses of successive retreat of the glacier.
