An esker is a narrow ridge of stratified material (till that has been sorted and deposited in layers according to grain size by running water).
It is lower and wider than the main esker, which may indicate that it is made of a different mix of sand and gravel, or may reflect an unknown change of conditions in the melting ice sheet.
The small knolls north of the eskers are kames, piles of gravel dropped into pits and crevices in the glacier by meltwater streams flowing on top of the ice.

Eskers then are the ridges of gravel and sand that mark the routes of streams and rivers that flowed on, in, and beneath the glaciers.
A mixture of sand, gravel, glacial sediment and boulders occurs in the Dahlen Esker.
The stream-flow direction, although suggested mostly by the position of the glacier margin, may be indicated by a hill of gravel near the northeast end of the esker; this hill may mark the point where water flowed from the surface of the glacier through an opening to a tunnel or ice-walled river channel.

 Ingraham Esker
The Ingraham Esker is a discontinuous, narrow, and sinuous ridge composed of sand and gravel that was deposited by a subglacial or englacial stream flowing in an ice tunnel.
At least some of the sediment associated with the esker was deposited as a subaqueous outwash fan in a deep proglacial lake (glacial Lake Vermont).
The esker fan deposits at some locations are interbedded with or overlain by varved clays, a deep-water, low energy proglacial lake deposit.

 What is an esker?
Drewry (1986) has defined an esker as "a sinuous, narrow, steep-sided ridge composed of irregular stratified sediment deposited in contact with (glacial) ice in either an open channel or an enclosed conduit." Eskers have been found to be straight in most instances; however, some do tend to meander.
Although esker dimensions differ greatly, the most common eskers are in the order of 50 metres high with some achieving heights of 80 metres.
Eskers are found in southern and western Canada; however, they are found in the greatest quantity in the north.

 Boxborough Esker
I thought it would be interesting to visit the esker and report how it appeared to me. It is not my intent to prove or disprove anything with this article, but simply to report what I saw and provide some photos for those who have not yet visited the site.
The esker is a natural geological formation nearly a mile and three quarters long from tip to tail, and more than sixty feet tall.
I also noticed that where a row crossed the esker’s spine at the southern end of the pond, that some of the stone was in large broken chunks and had large boreholes drilled in it.

 Ripley Esker/Winter
The esker is an amalgam of sand and gravel that was deposited by a meltwater stream that flowed beneath a glacier that blanketed this area 20,000 years ago.
At the west end of the esker is the St. Croix Moraine, an area of rolling hills that marks the end of the glacier's advance.
That side of the esker is an oak savanna-burr oaks interspersed with prairie grasses and wildflowers.

Eskers can be 500 to 600 kilometres long and, depending on the pattern of the glacier's inner tunnels, can interconnect in a pattern of central ridges and tributaries, just like a branching river system.
The most extensive esker formations in the world are found in the Districts of Keewatin in Nunavut, and Mackenzie in the Northwest Territories, in Manitoba, northern Quebec and Labrador.
Esker networks can also be found in Quebec's Appalachian region, as well as near Brampton, Ont., and throughout northern Ontario.

 WPC: Natural Resource Conservation: Miller Esker   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
An esker is a collection of gravel and other sediments deposited durring the melting process of a glacier.
Although much of the esker has eroded or been mined for its sand and gravel, the 700-foot section owned by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy as Miller Esker Natural Area is entirely preserved.
Because a portion of the natural area is mowed annually, the esker's form is visible as an open, mounded field.

An esker is a landform built of sand and gravel deposited by a melt water stream that flowed beneath a glacier.
The Ripley esker was formed beneath a tongue-shaped lobe of ice called the Superior lobe, which flowed into this area from the northeast about 20,000 to 15,000 years ago.
The best views of the esker are in the spring and fall, when the trees have no leaves and the prairie grasses are the dominant feature on the top of the esker.

An esker is a sinuous ridge of stratified sand and gravel that was formed by a meltwater stream flowing underneath stagnant glacier ice.
Because they are both landforms resulting from stagnating ice, eskers and kames often occur on the same landscape.
Eskers are convenient sources for sand and gravel.

The Esker Riada is a natural system of mounds consisting of gravel and rocks which are believed to have been deposited approximately 10,000 years ago, when an ice-age glacier covering western Europe melted as a result of local climatic warming.
Mythological Celtic sun gods are said to have used the line of the Esker Riada as the arena for their daily battles; and the moment to moment outcome of their power struggles was displayed in terms of light and shade all along the ridge.
By morning time, when it rose again at the opposite end of the Esker Riada, the sun might still be showing signs of the blood-letting which took place the previous day.
