Piedmont glaciers. Aerial view of piedmont glaciers in a valley. The glaciers flow from left and right into the valley through narrow mountain passes. As the glaciers flow across the broad valley floor, the lack of lateral restriction allows them to fan out. Where these fans coalesce, the result is a piedmont glacier. Photographed over Axel Heiberg Island, Canada.
