        If the glacier flows just by internal deformation, then it is likely that rates
        of creep decrease with depth, with fastest ice movement at the surface and slowest
        (or no) ice movement at the base and at the valley sides, where resistive stresses
        are highest (Jiskoot et al., 2011). Ice deforms because it is plastic.

        Argm-loc: internal
        Rel: deformation

Example: deformed-j

        person: ns,  tense: ns,  aspect: ns,  voice: passive,  form: participle
