  • A process in which large blocks of ice detach from the thinning and retreating terminus of a glacier that ends in a body of water. It occurs as the terminus thins to the point at which its buoyancy no longer allows it to remain in contact with its bed. As the glacier begins floating free and rising, it rapidly disintegrates along old fracture scars and crevasses.
