Are we allowed to fold and glue pages ontop of of the only 4 pages allowed?

No folding, but you can glue information, provided they aren't to extend the size of the page.
Basically, the surface area must stay the same.

That's risky since the event supervisor might not allow it.

Can somebody explain what ground moraine is?

Irregular layer of till left on the ground by a glacier. Not exactly an accumulation as you may imagine a moraine to look like, but rather similar to another sedimentary layer with the characteristics of till.

How is it left exactly?

After the glacier melts, the till is left on the ground.

Edit: There may also be different mechanics that I'm not aware of (perhaps just by regular melt water), but as far as I know that's the main way a ground moraine is formed.

okay, thanks.

I have also heard of it as the glacier advancing over an already existing moraine and spreading the till, but I am not sure of the validity.

how have you guys learned the event? i'm pretty trash at glaciers, but i'm not sure what source i should be using/how i should be studying.

I'm decent at the event but i would focus on math, reading topo maps, identifying glaciers, gacial history and anything relating to isostocy but the math

You should definitely look into being able to identify the different glacial depositional and erosional patterns

I'm okay with all of that stuff except maybe topo maps, but my problem is that at competitions, a large number of teams tend to do really well, and I want to think that i'm pretty solid with that stuff. At regionals and states I got 4th and 10th respectively, on tests I felt like I did well on. This leads me to the conclusion that the top teams have some sort of way to have detailed knowledge of everything. Even on the Cornell test, where the entire open ended portion was super tough and challenging, we didn't make enough mistakes on the easier part for the margin between us and the other places to be so high.
In other words, I don't understand how the best teams are so good, and what they are doing differently from me.

Wasting tons of time scrolling the web for random glacier info. Ima bet that's it.
Also guessing ability.
Know what an ice flower is?
I don't, and our A team didn't, but I guessed wrong (fortunately I guessed the landsat ones correctly :P )

You can't but you can print multiple pages on one page
