Definitions for "Glaciers"
A large body of ice moving slowly down a slope or valley or spreading outward on a land surface.
the large masses of ice that form on land by the recrystallization of old compacted snow; they flow from the area where they are formed downhill to an area where ice is removed by melting or calving (breaking off) into a water body
Large bodies of ice that move slowly down a slope or spread outwards on a land surface. The greenhouse effect (warming of the earth) has been causing glaciers to melt.
