Quick Reference

A ground moraine surface which shows streamlined ridges and grooves trending at right angles to the ice front. Individual ridges are generally less than 1km long and less than 10m high. They may form as a consequence of high vertical ice pressure forcing a subglacial, plastic till up into the low-pressure zone down-glacier of a large boulder.
