Description

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! An ice field is an area less than 50,000 km² 19,305 mile² of ice often found in the colder climates and higher altitudes of the world where there is sufficient precipitation. It is an extensive area of interconnected valley glaciers from which the higher peaks rise as nunataks. Ice fields are larger than alpine glaciers, smaller than ice sheets and similar in area to ice caps.Ice fields are formed by a large accumulation of snow which, through years of compression and freezing, turns into ice. Due to ice s susceptibility to gravity, ice fields usually form over large areas that are basins or atop plateaus thus allowing a continuum of ice to form over the landscape and not be interrupted by glacial channels. Glaciers often form on the edges of ice fields serving as gravity-propelled drains on the ice field which is in turn replenished by the ice field s snowfall.
