Definition: No moraines: no moraines; Terminal moraines : Sometimes problematic to identify in satellite imagery due to the lack of distinction between terminal moraine and debris surface coverage of a glacier; Lateral and/or medial moraine: Sometimes problematic for detection by means of remote sensing techniques due to the lack of distinction between lateral moraine and debris surface coverage of a glacier; Push moraine: Push moraines are difficult to identify unambiguously by remote sensing techniques, because in satellite images they are often not distinguishable from 'normal' terminal moraines; Debris, uncertain if morainic: Debris, uncertain if morainic; Moraines, type uncertain or not listed: Moraines, type uncertain or not listed;  GLIMSGlacier
