Rock Glacier Illustration
Typical formation of glacially derived rock glacier. alpine ice forms and becomes a glacier. Precipitation decreases and talus begins to fall on the rock glacier. Eventually, the glacier is entirely covered in talus due to a lack of precipitation, The ice effectively cements the glacier together with talus on top.
