Relief and Bathymetry British Columbia occupies part of the vast belt of mountainous terrain that flanks the western margins of the Americas. In some sections of the belt the terrain rises steeply from the ocean floor to summit elevations in excess of 5,000 metres, representing a total relief of more than 9,000 metres. Elsewhere the relief is less and the ascent is broken by the presence of a continental shelf. In British Columbia, the continental slope begins to rise from the ocean floor at a depth of about —3,600 m (2,000 fathoms), rises abruptly from around -2,500 to -200 m, and then levels off to form a continental shelf.
Nowhere are the effects of glaciation more evident than in British Columbia, where features of erosion and deposition by glacial ice are ubiquitous. The Pleistocene epoch began about two million years ago, and during it several fluctuations in the quantity and distribution of glacial ice occurred.

In principle it is recognized that ice accumulation began in the higher elevations in much the same pattern evidenced by present-day glaciers.
