Awsome Landforms

So many misteries to solve

1.Canyons

Canyons are bound by cliffs and cut by erosion,Canyons are really deep so I wouldn't want to fall of of one just saying !!! Layers of rock outline stories of regional geology like a table of contents in a scientific text.The most famous canyon is the Grand Canyon of course it is 277 miles 446 kilometers long MORE THAN 5000 feet 1500 meters deep wow!!!!!!!!!! Here is another picture of one.

2.Glaciers

A Glacier is a persistent body of ice that forms were accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over lots of years often centuries.Glaciers slowly deform and flow due to stresses induced by their weight creating crevasses and other distinguishing features .So it must be pretty!!!!!

Cool Glaciers

3.Barrier island

Barrier island

A barrier island is a long thin sandy stretch of land oriented parallel

to the mainland coast that protects the coast from the full force of powerful storm waves that's cool!!!! Between the barrier island and the mainland is a calm, protected body of water such as a lagoon or bay.Barrier islands are dynamic systems, constantly on the move wow it must get tired !!!migrating under the influence of changing sea levels, storms, waves tides and long shore currents. In the United states barrier islands occur offshore where gently sloping sandy coastlines as opposed to rocky coastline exist.

4.Erg

Erg

A erg is like a sand dune. An erg also sand sea or dune sea or sand sheet if it lacks dunes is a broad flat area of desert covered with wind -swept sand with little or no vegetative cover.The largest hot desert in the world, the Sahara it contains several ergs i wouldn't want to live there if its the hottest !!!!!!

5.Lava tube

Lava tubes are a type of lava cave!!!!!! formed when an active low viscosity lava flow develops a continuous and hard crust, which thickens and forms a roof above the still-flowing lava stream. Tubes form in one of two ways: by the crusting over of lava channels and from pahoehoe flows where the lava is moving under the surface.
