Kames or eskers are linear ridges, where gravels have been deposited by a river flowing through a glacier, a passageway through the ice becoming filled with gravels. They are often discontinuous, the gravels being deposited after a passageway was blocked by ice. When the ice blockage melts, a gap is left in the gravel ridge, here exploited by the B9102.
