Maybe? If so, Enough?
Ogives are alternating bands of light and dark ice that form on some glaciers, just below icefalls.

EDIT:
Answer
A Jökulhlaups is an outburst flood caused by excess glacial meltwater overflowing.

What is the diffrence between a Roche Moutonnee and a Drumlin? (list at least 3)

It just goes with time. At first, I used the preview function a lot.

Yep.
JoeyC wrote:What is the diffrence between a Roche Moutonnee and a Drumlin? (list at least 3)

Answer
1) Drumlin= depositional landforms, Roche Moutonnee= erosional landforms. 2) Drumlin= smooth surfaces both up and downstreams, Roche Moutonnee= smooth surface upstream only. 3) Drumlin is less erosional resistant than Roche Moutonnee

Assuming that's right^^, name a consequence of Neoproterozoic snowball Earth.

EDIT:Ok, yeah, I give up on the hide function. It doesn't like me for some reason...
EDIT2: Yayyy!! It worked!!

Ya gotta put a pipe "|" symbol after the title and before the hidden text.

Answer
It would warm the Earth due to the severe increase in greenhouse gasses? I'm not sure of this one.

Yeah, that works. Your turn! (And, thank you for the tip!! It might be helpful for me to learn how to use these functions :lol: )

No problem.

1. Where is the majority of the Earth's glacial ice located?
2. What percentage of Earth's glacial ice is located there?
