Refreezing of meltwater to ice at the bed of a glacier, often associated with the transition from high pressure (forcing melting) to low pressure (allowing refreezing) around a basal obstacle.

Regelation

Regelation is the phenomenon of melting under pressure and freezing again when the pressure is reduced. Many sources state that regelation can be demonstrated by looping a fine wire around a block of ice, with a heavy weight attached to it. The pressure exerted on the ice slowly melts it locally, permitting the wire to pass through the entire bloc...
