Okay, I've looked up images directly to try to find the geographic distribution of like ice caps, alpine glaciers, ice streams, that sort of stuff. I can't find any. Does anybody know a source that contains these or just like the url to a image that has these?
Thank you!

Okay, thank you. Just checking, crevasses, ogives, and icefalls all indicate ablation, right?

Yes, I think so

Various invitationals are scheduled at different times—for instance, Conestoga and Carnegie Mellon were today. The tests from these invites might be posted on the test exchange with permission from the tournament directors/test makers.

For your cheat sheets, is it worth putting a picture of each depositional and erosional landforms? I can identify most of them, but would it be much faster if I just stuff some pictures into my free space?

I'm putting some pictures about those, but if you can readily identify them without even using the cheat sheet, then you don't need to.

Also, were 2014 guidelines for dynamic planet the same as this years?

Also, were 2014 guidelines for dynamic planet the same as this years?
i. Ice cores as archives of past environments including gases, aerosols, and stable isotope composition
j. Sedimentary sequences produced in glacial environments in the marine and terrestrial realms
k. Milankovitch cycles’ role in producing climate cyclicity and role in dating
l. The Laurentide Ice Sheet retreat & melting history; impact on river drainage; and oceanic circulation
m. Modeling rates and size of ice sheet changes (e.g., marine ice sheet instability, ice shelf buttressing)
n. Methods of studying glaciers & what they tell you: Altimetry, radar, Landsat, seismology, and gravity
o. Recent records of cryospheric change: (e.g., Larsen B, Kilimanjaro, Amundsen Sea Embayment)

I believe that all of this is new to 2019.

Do you guys know anything about glacial models and where to get info on them? I can't find anything about them online!

I personally have 4 pages of information and 4 pages of pictures, correlated with location. In other words, if erosional landforms were on the second page of info on the 4th column, then the correlating pictures would be in the second page of pictures in the same viscinity as the 4th column. It's not for everyone, but it works for me really well.

What do you mean by models?
