______________ erosion is responsible for the formation of Cirque.

A. Wind

B. Glacial

C. River

D. Underground water

Answer :

Erosion and deposition are also caused by the actions of glaciers. Glaciers are huge masses of snow that is transported, accumulated and deposited in other regions due to the action of natural agents. Cirque is not a depositional feature of the glacier. It is an erosional feature that erodes and moves through the steep areas and cliffs of the mountains to form a bowl-shaped depression in the surface. Thus it is an erosional feature resulting in the movement of glaciers to places in which later they are deposited.
