Who knew there were so many types of glaciers. As MESA is exploring geology this year, the good folk of Bryant Pond came on down and did a great glacier activity with the MESA students. Phil and Chelsea gave small groups some small "dirty glaciers" and the students were able to make some nice observations.

Go full screen and watch the "dirty glacier."



Have a MESA student tell you how this represents a glacial moraine. 
Which one? Terminal? Medial? Lateral?
