In the Alps there are more than 1, valley glaciers. Glaciers and Glaciation Glaciers constitute much of the Earth that makes up the cryosphere, the part of the Earth that remains below the freezing point of water.

Most glacial ice today is found in the polar regions, above the Arctic and Antarctic Circles. While glaciers are of relatively minor importance today.
