Landforms and Waterforms

  1. 1. Landforms Earth’s Physical Features Created by: Roiden Fredrich Fernandez
  2. 2. Landforms A landform in the earth sciences comprises a geomorphological unit, and is largely defined by its surface form and location in the landscape. As part of the terrain a landform is an element of topography
  3. 3. Mountains It’s a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill.
  4. 4. Mountains Mountains are formed through tectonic forces or volcanism.
  5. 5. Mount Everest Mount Everest is the Earth's highest mountain.
  6. 6. Plateaus also called a high plain or tableland, is an area of highland, usually consisting of relatively flat terrain.
  7. 7. Tibetan Plateau The largest and highest plateau in the world. It is called the "roof of the world", which is still being formed by the collisions of the Indo- Australian and Eurasian tectonic plates.
  8. 8. Tibetan Plateau
  9. 9. Bukidnon Plateau
  10. 10. Plains A plain is a flat region. Plains occur as lowlands and at the bottoms of valleys but also on plateaus or uplands at high elevations.
  11. 11. Deserts A desert is a barren area of land where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life.
  12. 12. Sahara Desert
  13. 13. Antartic Desert
  14. 14. Loess Loess is a clastic, predominantly silt-sized sediment, which is formed by the accumulation of wind-blown dust.
  15. 15. Loess
  16. 16. Glaciers A glacier is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight; it forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation over many years, often centuries.
  17. 17. Aletsch Glacier The Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier of the Alps, in Switzerland
  18. 18. Quelccaya Ice Cap The Quelccaya Ice Cap is the largest glaciated area in the tropics, in Peru
  19. 19. Valley is a depression that is longer than it is wide. The terms U- shaped and V-shaped are descriptive terms of geography to characterize the form of valleys.
  20. 20. Islands Is any piece of sub-continental land that is surrounded by water. Very small islands such as emergent land features on atolls can be called islets, skerries, cays or keys.
  21. 21. Philippines The Philippines is an Archipelago with 7, 107 islands.
  22. 22. Mauritus Island
  23. 23. Islet An islet is a very small island.
  24. 24. Waterforms Earth’s Physical Features
  25. 25. Ocean is a body of saline water that composes much of a planet's hydrosphere.
  26. 26. Pacific Ocean
  27. 27. Sea The sea, the world ocean, or simply the ocean. It moderates the Earth's climate and has important roles in the water cycle, carbon cycle, and nitrogen cycle.
  28. 28. Sea and Ocean Seas are smaller than oceans and are usually located where the land and ocean meet. Typically, seas are partially enclosed by land.
  29. 29. Strait A strait is a naturally formed, narrow, typically navigable waterway that connects two larger bodies of water.
  30. 30. Strait of Gibraltar
  31. 31. Gulf A gulf in geography is a large bay that is an arm of an ocean or sea.
  32. 32. Gulf of Gabes
  33. 33. Gulf of Mexico
  34. 34. Bay A bay is a large body of water connected to an ocean or sea formed by an inlet of land due to the surrounding land blocking some waves and often reducing winds.
  35. 35. Manila Bay
  36. 36. Wineglass Bay
  37. 37. Lake Lake is surrounded by land apart from a river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake.
  38. 38. River A river is a natural watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, a lake, a sea, or another river. In a few cases, a river simply flows into the ground or dries up completely at the end of its course, and does not reach another body of water.
  39. 39. Nile River a major north-flowing river in northeastern Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world. It is 6,853 km (4,258 miles) long.
  40. 40. Amazon River
  41. 41. Spring A spring is a point where water flows out of the ground
  42. 42. Hotspring
  43. 43. Waterfall A waterfall is a place where water flows over a vertical drop in the course of a stream or river. Waterfalls also occur where meltwater drops over the edge of a tabular iceberg or ice shelf. —
  44. 44. Angel Falls Angel Falls is a waterfall in Venezuela. It is the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall, with a height of 979 m and a plunge of 807 m.
  45. 45. Lagoon is a shallow body of water separated from a larger body of water by barrier islands or reefs.
  46. 46. Coastal Lagoon
  47. 47. Atoll Lagoon
  48. 48. Atoll Lagoon
