two common ways in which a glacier can cause ersion?

asked by bob
  1. As the glacier moves, it scours the topsoil and rocks off and deposits them elsewhere. The Canadian Shield was scoured by glaciers so that much of the bedrock is on the surface.

    As the glacier melts, the water erodes the land.
