Push moraine

A push moraine in the landscape is formed due to pushing of sediments by a glacier or ice sheet. The pushed sediments are generally deposited before or during the ice coverage. These push moraines can be tens of meters to over 100 meters high.

Push moraines are common in parts of northern Europe.
