This may sound weird, however remember that a glacier is not necessarily one you find floating is water. A glacier can be and is categorized as a bit placement - amount - of ice in a certain sport. Hope this helps. Ciiara

They are both ice and they may both be melting. But the iceberg is already displacing water, so by melting does little to raise the sea level. When a glacier melts, the additional water does raise the sea level somewhat. This would be particularly true when major ice caps such as the Greenland ice cap, melt.
