An accumulation of earth and stones carried forward and
deposited by a glacier. --Lyell.
Note: If the moraine is at the extremity of the glacier it is
a terminal moraine; if at the side, a lateral moraine;
if parallel to the side on the central portion of the
glacier, a medial moraine. See Illust. of Glacier. In
the last case it is formed by the union of the lateral
moraines of the branches of the glacier. A ground
moraine is one beneath the mass of ice.
