Do any other planets in the solar system have tectonic processes similar to Earth? If so, how is it different?

Odd question, but all right.
Answer
The gas giants obviously don't, but the other inner planets have basically settled to have little more than small scale geologic processes

Just in case you've forgotten, you've got a answer.

How do glaciers form?

And could you please quote me so I remember about these?

I wasn't going to bother since I would have to re-do it after the rollover and I'm probably not going to be that active during the summer. Any guesses? I don't need the technical terminology, but that would be helpful to your studies.

Sorry for the double post:
How do glaciers form? It's a simple, easy question. I hope...

answer
Glaciers form when enough snow accumulates so that it is compressed into ice.

Something along the lines of this:
A glacier forms when the annual snowfall rate exceeds the rate of ablation.

Veeeeeerrrrrrrrry sloooowwwwllllllyyyy...
I believe that you are looking for this, though: Glaciers flow downhill because of gravity and the internal deformation of the ice.
If I'm right, someone can go in my place. I will be at Summer Camp Sunday to Saturday.
