Glaciated valley landsystems

Glaciated valley landsystems

This section of ‘AntarcticGlaciers’ deals with valley glaciers and the landsystems they create.

Before diving into examples from specific glacier systems, we suggest first reading the Introduction to glaciated valley landsystems page, which covers valley glacier behaviour and how this influences the landforms and sediments they leave in the landscape.


This video shows some awesome drone imagery of Nigardsbreen Glacier in Norway. This clean-ice valley glacier has beautiful crevasses, and you can clearly see the trimlines, lateral moraines, ice-scoured bedrock and debris of the glacier.
