Transcript

  • 1. Shaping of the landscape RAINWATER OCEANS WIND GLACIERS GROUNDWATER RIVERS http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com
  • 2. Wind
    • Wind may erode, transport and deposit rock materials to change the landscape. It is only an effective agent in places where it is strong, usually in dry regions with scant vegetation.

  • 3. Glaciers
    • Glaciers are masses of moving ice. They cut U-shaped valleys known as glacial valleys.

  • 4. Rivers
    • Rivers also carry out erosion, transportation and deposition which change the landscape. The dominant process depends on the velocity of the water.

  • 5. Rainwater
    • Rainwater is a very effective agent for eroding and shaping relief features in areas with dry climates and torrential rain.
    http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com Beach at Hilo Bay (Hawaii). Heavy rains caused some erosion.
  • 6. Groundwater
    • Groundwater causes the dissolution of limestone rock and forms karst landscapes.
    Limestone – piedra caliza http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com
  • 7. Ocean waves
    • Ocean waves, tides and currents shape coastal landscapes.
