Glacial erosion has created distinctive types of landscapes reflecting the extent, duration, and processes of the parent glaciers. Alpine landscapes are representative of pervasive erosion at the local scale. Landscapes formerly covered by larger scale glaciations display a wide range of appearances, from intensively eroded to preserved. Landscapes of selective linear erosion were formed, where subglacial melting occurred along certain corridors that were flanking regions of subglacial freezing. Landscapes of areal scouring were formed where subglacial melting on low-relief surfaces allowed spatially extensive subglacial stripping to dominate. Landscapes of little or no erosion indicate a dominance of subglacial freezing conditions.
