Landforms

Parent Category: Geography
A landform is a natural land feature that makes up the Earth’s surface. There are many kinds of landforms, including valleys, island, volcanoes, caves, mountains, plateaus, hills, plains, desert, and glaciers.
No volcano was buried in Italy. The volcano Mount Vesuvius buried  the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum in the year 79.
Indeed they are. Misconceptions rise about the same geographic  features. Like most names, the Rocky mountains was shortened to the  Rockies because people were too lazy to just say Rocky mountains  and instead said the Rockies, which leads to misconceptions like  this.   Similarly, the...

Haleakala is on the island of Maui and makes up the majority of the  island.
Gia Island near the west coast of Africa.
Humans had visited the Galapagos Islands as far back as the first  documented visit by the Bishop of Panama in 1535 (almost 300 years  earlier) but whether there were humans present on the time of his  visit I do not know for sure.
It started in Colombia 25 million years ago. it was active about 25  million years - 18 million years ago.
Predominantly due to friction. Major earthquakes (the ones you hear  about on the news) occur at collision (where two tectonic plates  are smashing together) and conservative (where two plates slide  side-by-side) boundaries.   Rocks (which obviously make up tectonic plates) can undergo two ...
What will I be able to do when I've finished this with the rational and irrational numbers.
Kings Mountain, the highest mountain in the US state of Utah is a  dormant volcano. It is often termed as a super-volcano. This is  because millions of years ago i.e the time when Kings mountain was  an active volcano, its frequent eruptions measured more than a  whopping 13,00 feet.
Vesuvius is about 1,000 feet deep and 2,000 feet across.
they are big and in the way
There is no difference. Stratovolcano is just another way of saying  composite. Composite volcanoes are very explosive and the most  dangorous (also very big). Example: Mount vesuvius and Mount St.  Helens
to get to Pompeii, you have to go to Naples, Italy. You will alsofind mount Vesuvius, which is the volcano the destroyed Pompeii.
yes according to scientific experiences.
The mount toba supervolcano last erupted some 70,000 years ago.  However it is still active as indicated by the earthquakes that  occurred as recently as 1922. The honest answer is we don't know,  but its unlikely it will erupt soon.
The highest tidal wave ever recorded was 1,720 feet tall, and  occurred in 1958 in Alaska.
A very Very little amount! I would know. Im doing a report on the Galapagos. 5/11/12 10:51 a.m.
Typically a quiet eruption means that the magma being forced onto  the surface is low in silicates and gases. This typically means  that it would be basaltic and slow moving like the lava flows that  can be observed in Hawai'i. A common danger to anybody near a  volcano could be poisonous gases.
An isthmus is a strip of land that connects two larger areas of  land. It typically has water on either side. From what I have  heard, there are currently 56 isthmuses on Earth. I wouldn't say  they are common, but they are definitely not rare.
Scientists do not know exactly when Yellowstone will erupt. Most  likely in a few million years or so (estimate).
Do you mean the Falkland islands? If so, the longitude is 59  degrees west.
mountains, volcanoes.earthquakes also, but earthquakes are not a landform.
Yes. Mt Melbourne Volcano, 2733 m, stands isolated near the coast of Terra Nova Bay.
Well your mom is one
At the summit of Mount Everest is 33% that of sea level
The correct answer is Sliding Friction
The physical feature that is located in eastern Africa and is south  of the Ethiopian Highlands and northwest of Mt. Kenya is the Great  Rift Valley. It consists of low plateaus and plains.
The rift valley was formed when the continents divided it split  open a large area in Africa and formed The Great Rift Valley.
 Mt. Si   4,167 feet     Named After Josiah "Uncle Si" Merritt, a  homesteader who lived at the base in the nineteenth century, but  most famous for its starring role in the Twin Peaks credit  sequence     Found Just over a half hour from Seattle, the  North Bend's massif is a...
The world's most active volcano is the Kilauea, which is in the  island of Hawaii.
There are four main processes that contribute to erosion -   Chemical Weathering, Biological Weathering, Exfoliation, and  Freeze-Thaw
the land forms in grenada are clayish and foresty
A series of mountain is known as range; for example, the Indian  Himalayan Range
France, Switzerland and Austria don't have a common border, so  there is not one single mountain that runs through the three of  them.
Mt. Lassen is a lava dome type of volcano. The domes of lava dome  volcanoes grows from within, and commonly occur within the craters  or on the flanks of large composite volcanoes.
The Sherpas live there and many people go there to hike, some trying to ascend to the summit of Mount Everest.
Yes, it is. Mont Blanc is in the Alps The Alps are  a complex system of lower fold mountains and high  crystalline massifs.
Compostela Valley is a province of the Philippines usually called  by a shortened name 'Comval'. It was once part of Davao del Norte  until its independence in 1998
A physical feature formed by volcanic eruption is an island. The  Hawaiian Islands consist of a chain of such landforms.
Dhaulagiri - Located in Nepal, Asia it is the earth's 7th highest mountain at 8,167 meters above sea level.
yes there were some survivers but nobody knows how many
You can't make a proper cup of cup of tea on Mount Everest because  oxygen level is low and it's freezing up on Everest!

Abundant natural resources such as coal and lumber, fresh water, shelter or rather the advantage of being hidden from the sight of others while being able to see them in case of an attack. Also at the top of the mountains there is a great view of miles and miles of the surrounding areas. Good for...
Over 1000 degrees centigrade
No. Not in North America. There are mountain ranges in NorthAmerica with other names - like the Rocky Mountains. The Pyrenees Mountain Range is in Europe.
No. The Earth won't "explode"! Volcanoes relieve pressure overrelatively small areas, but the planet's Crust and interior as awhole are basically in equilibrium.
Following are the altitudes of sichuan mountain in china. It islocated in 30^0 8'N and 102^0 56^E. This is the latitude andaltitude of sichuan mountain.
Volcanoes that are underwater, known as submarine volcanoes. Thedeepest one is the Submarine 1922 in the Celebes Sea near theSanghie Islands of Indonesia, and it is 16,000 feet (5,000 meters)below sea level.
The 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius did not produce lava flows. It  was a Plinian eruption, produducing a massive ash plume and  pyroclastic flows. Pyroclastic flows are not lava flows, they are  masses of hot ash, rock, and gas that resemble avalanches. Nobody  was able to clock the speed of...
It is not on a plate boundary but in the middle of a plate. Kilauea  has formed over a hot spot.
sand dunes important in tornadoes as when the tornadoes come the  high pressure wind take it to the direction where the wind is  blowing
the active boundary between plates is a ?
It was named Mt. Rainier by George Vancouver for his friend, Read  Admiral Peter Rainier. Native Americans, of course, had their own  name for it before the British arrived.
Mount Saint Helens is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc. This  volcanic arc is included in the ring of fire. All Cascade Volcanoes  in the Western United States are considered part of the Ring of  Fire.
The longest land border between two countries is between Canada and the USA at 8891km. The border between the Russian Federation and The Republic of Kazakhstan is 6846km.
The current of the river pulls sand, clay and earthy materials down the river until it piles up somewhere creating a delta.
Saint-pierre, destroyed by the eruption of 1902
the examples of landforms created by wind are slumps, mudslides, creeps, landslides, waterfalls, oxbow lakes, groundwater erosion, valley glacier, continental glacier, U shaped valley, horn, cirque, glacial lake, glacial till, kettle lake, sand dunes, hoodoo, yardganges, deflation hollows.
  Lewis was never married. He did have siblings, but no children. Check the Wikipedia info on him. The bottom of the page says,   "Due to his shy personality, Lewis never married. Although he died without legitimate heirs, he does have the putative DNA model haplotype for his paternal...

There are a wide variety of geographical features of Alaska. These  include mountains, rivers, lakes, as well as open plains.
