A glacier (US: /ˈɡleɪʃər/ GLAY-shər) or (UK: /ˈɡlæsiə/) is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight; it forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries. Glaciers slowly deform and flow due to stresses induced by their weight, creating crevasses, seracs, and other distinguishing features. Because glacial mass is affected by long-term climate changes, e.g., precipitation, mean temperature, and cloud cover, glacial mass changes are considered among the most sensitive indicators of climate change. There are about 198,000 to 200,000 glaciers in the world.

  • 氷河の一覧(ひょうがのいちらん)は、世界の氷河の一覧である。
  • Devido à informação de alguma forma esparsa, algumas geleiras, especialmente aquelas nos trópicos, podem não mais existir como listadas. Isso é especialmente verdade para geleiras na África e Nova Guiné.(Ver artigo principal: Geleira) Esta página compara Listas de geleiras.
