1.A glacial is a type of glacier. These glaciers are found on high mountains, near the top of the ice sheet. The name is derived from the Latin word glacius, meaning "icy." Glaciers are a type of ice sheet.

2. Glaciers form when snow accumulates on the ground. The weight of the snow compresses the snow and makes it harder. This makes the snow layers above warmer and less dense. Less dense snow creates a Moving Mountain.
