Is slump a glacier?

No. A glaciers is a slowly flowing mass of ice. A slump is a form of mass wasting in which a mass of rock or sediment breaks loose from a slope and moves relatively slowly downhill as a coherent mass.

The process in which a glacier loosens and picks up rock as it moves is called?

Plucking is the process in which a glacier freezes around cracked and broken rock and when it moves downhill, the rock is plucked from the back wall of the glacier.

Where does a River erode sediment?

sediments are transported by ocean rift, streams, river currents, wind (air). they are deposited according to size. The largest sediments are deposited first. The sediments settle into the sand and are carried by the stream. Near the mouth of the stream where the water moves slowly the small sediments settle out. The larger sediments get carried by the river into the sea then the samller sediments. The sea water dissolved minerals and soak the sediments and cement together. This eventually forms sediments.

What happens before a glacier forms?

Basically, it snows alot for a very long time, the snow piles up in a hollow on a mountainside, the snow becomes extremely pressurised and becomes ice, it then slowly moves downhill.
