Compressional flow | Topics | tutor2u Geography

Compressional flow: where the gradient becomes less steep or the ice encounters a major obstacle the ice mass slows, backs up, crevasses close and there are thrust fractures as the ice mass compresses. The increased thickness of ice exerts greater pressure on bedrock and can result in more extensive pressure erosion.
