Ice Fall Deposits: These hummocky, lobate features extend from the base of
steep bank walls and are 5-10 meters high. They represent rock debris deposited
from lobes of ice that flowed from the top of the bank into the surrounding valleys
60-70 meters below. They are now covered with a veneer of fine sediment.
