Malaspina Glacier Morraine Patterns

Malaspina Glacier Morraines - Photo (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelThe moraine patterns on the Malaspina Glacier are visually quite spectacular in that they have huge contortions that result from the glacier crinkling as it gets pushed from behind by the faster-moving valley glaciers. This aerial view shows just a  small segment of the massive Malaspina Glacier, which is also considered the largest Piedmont glacier in the world. Piedmont glaciers are the result of large valley glaciers meeting to form an almost stagnant sheet of ice
