  • Transporting Debris
    • Supraglacial Debris
      • Carried on the surface of the glacier as moraine
      • Consists of material which has fallen on to the glacier from the surrounding valley sides
    • Englacial Debris
      • Material carried within the body of the glacier
      • The material may once have been on the surface only to be buried by later snowfalls or fallen through crevasses
    • Subglacial Debris
      • Debris is moved along the floor of the valley either by the ice or by meltwater streams caused by PMP
