Definition: This is the environment where Glaciers are located. It often includes unglaciated mountain peaks, called nunataks. Glaciers, Ice Caps, icefields and other surface Snow and Ice form an frozen water system that interacts with the atmosphere and hydrosphere. Glacial environments are characterized by a suite of distinct geomorphic processes and their associated landforms.  TrombottoGeocryology
