Glaciers and Icebergs. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 11 June 1914

Glaciers and Icebergs. Most of us tnlk of glaciers nnd ice bergs familiarly ; but how many know how they nro formed ? When .snow falls in the lower re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvio explained to a largo audience of young1 folks in the thea tre of the Jioynl Geographical So ciety at Turlington Gardens, it docs not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So the layers of snow are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche ; but on a high table land there is no such escape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, becnuso the lower layers are pressed down by the .great weight, the air is squeezed out, and ' granular ice is formed. This downward motion is the es sential feature in the .glacier. First the grains of ico :are no bigger than a pin's head ; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger and bigger, and the large ones absorb the smaller. Th...
