Explain how glaciers move.
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.
That's a veeeeerrrrrrrrry elaborate answer.
I'm gonna guess: the ice melts, which makes water. The water wets the surface the glacier is on, causing it to slip and slide at a pretty slow pace

Why can't dinosaurs ski? Because they're dead.

That's correct, if anyone wants to go they can go, otherwise I'll go again.

Go ahead. That's another factor.

Speaking of glaciers, does anyone know any good study resources, because I don't want to be guessing that the how of glacier movement is caused by gravity and the glacier weathering anything else in its way down.

I would protest, but I don't want to spam this page.
1. What is a jökulhlaup?
2. Name a volcano that has caused a jökulhlaup in the past.
3. Are glaciers thinner or thicker than sea ice?

1. A type of glacial outburst flow.
2. Katla. It's in Iceland.
3. Glad to see you used my suggestion. Glaciers are much thicker than sea ice.

Correct. I would check the volcano, but basically every volcano in Iceland has caused a jökulhlaup. Your turn.
