Definition
a large mass of ice that moves over land like an exceedingly slow river

The form glacial, in addition to meaning relates to a glacier, can mean:
  • moves very slowly (like a glacier)
  • relates to a geological time period when much of the earth was covered with glaciers
  • relates to ice or cold (often metaphorically) — as in "She gave me a glacial stare."
  • Percy realized that the floor, which looked like solid stone, was more like the glacier he'd walked on in Alaska—in some places solid, in other places .... not so much.
