Landforms are features that make up the Earth's surface. There are many kinds of landforms. They can be locations, such as islands; terrain, such as mountains or valleys; or t…hose having specific qualities caused by climate, such as deserts, swamps, and glaciers. Some landforms are created by the action of wind, water, and ice. This action physically changes the Earth's surface by carving and eroding land surfaces, and by carrying and depositing soil, sand and other debris. Examples : a sand dune formed by wind, a river delta created by water, a plain formed by ancient lava flows. The scientific name for the study of landforms is geomorphology. --- The surface of the earth is not the same everywhere. Some parts are elevated. Some are rugged and others are flat. In other words, the Earth's surface is made up of different types of landforms. Landforms are any geological feature, such as a mountain or valley. any land feature that froms the earth's surface, mountains,valleys, plains. Landforms are also shapes that make up the surface
The origin of the word is not entirely clear but people generally favor the idea that it means the island of darkness or fog island. Reasoning: The Norwegian word skodde means… fog and avia means island in Norwegian. On old maps, Scandinavia is often shown as an island, and as people's knowledge of world geography was then quite limited, then this interpretation is likely correct. For more information about Scandinavia, visit http://goscandinavia.about.com Avia is not 'island' in Nordic languages, the right word is Ã¸ or Ã¸y, for which there is no modern English equivalent. The German letter Ã¶ is roughly the same.
Here are the types of Landforms: â¢Aeolian: desert, dry lake, dune, sandhill, tundra â¢Artificial: artificial island, artificial lake, artificial reef, building, b…ridge, canal (man-made channel), dam, dike, ditch, polder, quarry, reclaimed land, road, tunnel â¢Continental Plain: plains, tundra, ice sheet â¢Fluvial: alluvial fan, beach, canyon, channel, cave, cliff, river delta, floodplain, levee, oasis, swamp, pond â¢Glacial: arÃªte, cirque, esker, fjord, glacier, tunnel, valley â¢Mountainous: mountain, mountain range, plateau, hill, valley â¢Oceanic and Coastal: atoll, bay, channel, coast, continental shelf, coral reef, estuary, lagoon, mid-ocean ridge, oceanic trench, peninsula, isthmus, island, seamount â¢River: river, lake, meander, waterfall, rapids, river valley â¢Volcanic: caldera, crater lake, geyser, lava field, lava plateau, volcanic crater, volcano, plug, wall rock, lava dome, submarine volcano (guyot)
As an ethinic and linguistic group Sweden, Norway, Demark, Iceland,and the Faeroe Islands are all Scandinavia. Culturally andgeographically Finland is often included in that g…roup as well
Answer . Yes.
No. Not currently, but a union existed from 1397-1523 named the Kalmar Union . It united the three kingdoms of Denmark, Sweden and Norway under a single monarch. (Norway inc…luded Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Shetland, and Orkney) If it would still exist, it would, yes, probably be called by some as Scandinavia; "Scandinavia as a country", but yes it existed then, but no; not any more; Scandinavia is indeed not a country.
Yes, and Iceland is also a part of Europe.
landforms can be found anywere for example sandunes created by wind
Landforms are not 'for' anything, they exist as part of the world.
Genetically the main group is Germanic (like e.g. in Germany and the Netherlands), but already 1.000 years ago groups of Slavonic people also settled in parts of Denmark and S…weden facing towards present day Poland (and North-eastern Germany). To the very North of the Scandinavian peninsula approx. 100.000 Sami people live - they have most likely been there longer than the Germanic Scandinavians, but nobody knows for sure. Some pople - especially outsiders - sometimes include Finland in their definition of Scandinavia (which makes perfect sense from a cultural, historical and political perspective, but never-the-less is not usually done by the 'true' Scandinavians themselves, who would use the term Nordic countries when including Finland). The Finns are not a Germanic people.
Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland
Yes, it is.
Here is a list of the 3 Scandinavian capitals: Sweden = Stockholm Population: 2 million Norway = Oslo Population: 1.3 million Denmark = Copenhagen Population: 1.7 millio…n There are four capitals in Scandinavia: Oslo in Norway, Stockholm in Sweden, Copenhagen in Denmark, and Reykjavik in Iceland.
Nope. Germany is on the edge of East Germany and south of Scandinavia.
