Another term for glacial erosion is abrasion. Abrasions occur when particles scrape against one another, which causes erosion. The friction that is caused in an abrasion loosens debris from the glaciers, causing them to fall away. Abrasions can occur in many ecosystems. Rocks, waves, gravity, wind, and running water can all cause abrasions. Hope this helps.
