How Are Valley Glaciers and Continental Glaciers Different?


The difference between valley glaciers and continental glaciers is that valley glaciers are found in mountainous regions while continental glaciers are found on flat surfaces in Polar Regions. Valley glaciers move down mountain ridges while continental glaciers move out into the sea.

Continental glaciers are thicker and larger Valley glaciers are formed on mountains, continental glaciers are formed on flat land
Cont.- A glacier that forms over large areas
A continental glacier is a huge mass of ice that covers a lot of land near the Arctic or Antarctic polar regions. Continental glaciers are found in and around the Arctic, Antarctic
Well they are both made of ice. Valley glaciers will have more rock and foreign debris. Continental glaciers will be more purely ice. I am not really sure about the areal distribution
