  3. 3. Glaciers <ul><li>Glaciers are masses of moving ice. They cut U-shaped valleys known as glacial valleys. </li></ul>http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com
  4. 4. Rivers <ul><li>Rivers also carry out erosion, transportation and deposition which change the landscape. The dominant process depends on the velocity of the water. </li></ul>http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com
  5. 5. Rainwater <ul><li>Rainwater is a very effective agent for eroding and shaping relief features in areas with dry climates and torrential rain. </li></ul>http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com Beach at Hilo Bay (Hawaii). Heavy rains caused some erosion.
  6. 6. Groundwater <ul><li>Groundwater causes the dissolution of limestone rock and forms karst landscapes. </li></ul>Limestone – piedra caliza http://iespebilingue.wikispaces.com
