How do glaciers form?

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

A more effective way would be to temporarily subscribe to the thread

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...

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