The ice is flowing
Maybe you did not know that ice is flowing. This means that ice behaves a little like thick bread dough.
This picture shows a clear example of flowing ice; you can almost feel how the ice flows from the ice caps through the gorges into the valley. The picture was taken from an airplane flying over Axel Heiberg Island in the Canadian Arctic. If you want to see more images, go into Glaciers Online Glaciers Online. Photo: Jürg Alean.
