The Forni glacier

The Forni glacier (Valtellina), one of the most important Italian glaciers. It is easy to identify the accumulation area on top, which is lighter, and the ablation area where the ice is dark, covered with detritus. The medial moraine is clearly visible, and so are a series of large crevasses. Photograph . M. Inglese
