Elaborating more about the glacier landforms, one of the representatives of the company stated, "A glacier may fill a single valley. To have the characteristics and movement of a glacier, it generally needs to be at least 160 feet in depth. Some glaciers reach a depth of over 2000 feet. The largest glacial ice sheet in the world is the permanent ice sheet that covers almost the entire continent of Antarctica with a depth of up to 3 miles. A similar ice sheet covers Greenland. The characteristics of an ice sheet are different from glaciers that move down a mountainside. The largest moving glacier in the world is Lambert Glacier in eastern Antarctica. It is 250 miles long, 60 miles wide and up to 8000 feet deep."
