To answer this, think about the way water moves and how ice moves. Now think of steady fast-moving streams of water and massive hulking glaciers scraping across the land. Streams push sediments along and sort them into normalized groups. Sand is separated from stones of different sizes. Glacier pick up rocks in their slow progress and deposit them later as the ice melts. The streams' depositions are very regular; the glaciers' depositions are very irregular.
