How are glaciers formed and where they are formed
How are Glaciers formed, and where they are formed

  • <<<They form in the cold polar regions and in high mountains.

  • A glacier forms as layers of snow build up. The weight of the snow packs together the bottom layers and forms ice.

  • Glaciers can also form Ice caves which are really beautiful>>>>>>

  • Glaciers are formed mainly in areas of high altitude or high latitude. Mostly upland areas.
