What kind of rock is deposited by a glacier?

Answer

Glacial drift is the deposit of rock debris left behind by moving glaciers and glacial melt waters. After the glaciers have melted, the rocks left behind are scattered anywhere. Rocks may be dropped in place by the melting ice; they may be rolled to the ice margins, or they may be deposited by melt water streams.
