What Water vapor droplets form clouds and Earth's gravity pulls the moisture to the surface in the form of .

"rain"

When a glacier leaves behind a rock that is of completely different material composition than the formation it is deposited upon it is called

The rock is called a glacial erratic when it is left behind by a glacier, and is of a completely different material composition than the rocks on which it was deposited.
