Lateral Moraines at Margins of Penny Ice Cap

Horseshoe-shaped lateral moraines at the margin of the Penny Ice Cap on Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. Lateral moraines, formed by material falling from glacier valley walls, often take the form of high ridges left as a glacier recedes. Credit: NASA / Michael Studinger
