A glacial river

Glacier rivers are formed by the melting and flowing of water from the surface of a glacier. Glacier rivers can be very powerful and can carry large amounts of sediment. Glacier rivers are often very muddy because they contain suspended particles of ice and rock. The water in a glacier river can also be very cold, as it comes directly from the glacier. Glacier rivers can be dangerous places for people. They are often deep and strong, and the currents can be very powerful. From above, a glacier river looks like an impressive tangle of streams and rivers. You can see more photos of glacial rivers in the gallery: The Art of Nature
