we put mics down almost inside glaciers from a smallish boat and listened. This and the sounds following are field recordings from Glacier Bay, Alaska

When you hear the loud crashing, that's when the glacier is dropping tons of ice off itself and into the bay It's called calving

    Thanks, I used this sound in a theatre show with 19th century slides about the Arctic expeditions of that period. It worked great!

    Dear sklawlor,

    the last 37 seconds of which file?
    I do think I've explained and over explained what the sounds are. A loud obnoxious sound for quite a while is the glacier breaking off pieces of itself. There are rubbing sounds which are two pieces of glacier rubbing up against each other. All those bubbling and gurgling sounds are deep in the the glacier being picked up by a mic on a cord.
    I don't care if you process the sound. Have fun.
