- bigger that 0.01 km suqared
4. What is glacial distribution controlled by?
- temp and precipitation
- temperature, preciptation, high latitudes and altitudes
- temp. preci[itation, mositure and orbit of the earth
- percipitation, mositure and latitude
5. What are calving events?
- ice break off density
- ice that is broken off from a glacier, ice berg, ice shelve which persists in the water, ice rafted debris can be used to data large calving events
- ice grafter debriata calving events, and breaks off from glaicer
- ice calving density
