This is a landscape of ice towers on the surface of a modern glacier. A tower-like ice body left behind at the glacier’s end is called an ice tower, and a cluster of ice towers is called an ice tower forest. Ice towers are generally separated from the ice tongue. Dense moraines always lie between the ice towers, and the moraines always contain dead ice (Fig. 7).
