Glaciers and Melt water – Fluvioglacial environments<br />Objectives:<br />To understand where melt water is in the Glacial system<br />To recognise and explain Glacial hydrographs and regimes<br />To consider the role of melt water in shaping and changing glacial sediments<br />Glacial meltwater streams flowing off the Kaskawulsh glacier. <br />
  2. 2. How could MelT water move within the glacial System?<br />Make a copy of the diagram<br />Where will Moulins occur and why?<br />
  3. 3. Glaciers and meltwater – a little video<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tik28A0jZo<br />

  6. 6. Find the Moulins!<br />http://www.swisseduc.ch/glaciers/alps/index-en.html<br />
  7. 7. Glaciers and Melt water – Discharge of Glacial streams<br />What is discharge?<br />Describe and explain the patterns on the graph, ensure that you do this for all 4 of the lines<br />
