Glaciers : LUSENET : Introductory Geology, Oswego State : One Thread

For glaciers to move it must be heavy, so what if houses are built on a mountain where glaciers are fromed at the top of that mountain, will the ice crush the houses?

If the glacier moves and hits the house you can kiss the house goodbeye. but I wouldn't recomend building your house on the side of a steep mountain under a glaciers path. But then again thats just me :]

First of all why would you build a house on top of a mountain????If someone built a house on top of a mountain they are just looking to die.It would be impossible to build a house on top of a mountain. If somehow you was magistically build a house on a mountain, you can bet you will come home one day and your will will be on the bottom of that mountain eroded and crushesd.
