A sand and gravel deposit formed by running water on stagnant or moving-glacier ice. Crevasse fills or crevasse ridges form within crevasses. Kames form on flat or inclined ice, in holes, or in cracks. A kame terrace forms between the glacier and the adjacent land surface. Shapes include hills, mounds, knobs, hummocks, or ridges.
A conical hill. Composed primarily of water-rounded sand and cobbles, these deposits were left by streams that flowed downward through cracks in the glacial ice. The Kettle Moraine contains the largest and most-important kame fields in the world. Holy Hill, in Washington County is a kame.
A steep-sided, conical mound or hill formed of glacial drift that is created when sediment is washed into a depression on the top surface of a glacier and then deposited on the ground below when the glacier melts away.
a mound, knob or ridge composed of stratified sand and gravel deposited by a subglacial stream as a fan or delta at the margin of a glacier, by a superglacial stream, or as a ponded deposit on the surface or margin of stagnant ice.
A kame is a geological feature, an irregularly shaped hill or mound composed of sorted or stratfied sand and gravel that is deposited in contact with the glacial ice. It can have an irregular shape. Kames are often associated with kettles, and this is referred to as kame and kettle topography.
