Glaciers are large, slow-moving rivers of ice, rock and sediment that move under the influence of gravity. They are formed by accumulation and compaction of falling snow. Glaciers grow and shrink in response to climate, and cover around 10% of Earth's land area. Glaciers are the largest reservoir of fresh water on Earth, and directly influence the sea level variation.
