Relief :) ~ louie
It is relief.
A topographical map displays the variations in elevation of the Earth's surface.
cloud cover, differential heating in land and water, and elevation are all factors
Land-surface datum is a datum plane that is approximately at land surface at each well. If known, the elevation of the land-surface datum above sea level is given... Datum: any level surface, line, or point used as a reference in measuring elevations.
Land elevation is when land is higher than sea level
its variations in elevation play a part in climate distribution
Its the stuff and thinks idk sorry im from italy please call 3107485748
Tides in the ocean can cause variations in surface elevation of 50 feet or more between high tide and low tide. Also, being liquid, the sea flows from one place to another. Tides on land seldom exceed 6 inches in amplitude, and the land doesn't flow.
The average elevation of all Earth's surface is slightly above sea level at this time in Earth's history. Most of the earth is covered by water at an average depth of 3.8 kilometers (2.4 miles).
A mountain is a land form with a broad base that rises sharply into a peak. It is a large natural elevation of the surface of the Earth.
is location its height above a fixed reference point, often the mean sea level. Elevation, or geometric height, is mainly used when referring to points on the Earth's surface.
they collect changes in elevation tilting of land surface and ground movements
elevation of land surface above sea level
A Topographic map depicts elevation changes on Earth's surface.
The higher up in elevation a place is, the colder it will be. As for surface currents, I have no clue.
Each index contour has an elevation associated with it. When you look at 2 contours, one will have a higher corresponding elevation. As you go from the lower elevation to the higher elevation, you know that the land is increasing in the direction toward the higher elevation. From the higher to the lower elevation, the land is decreasing (sloping downward, decreasing in elevation).
A drop in the elevation of the surface of the land is called land subsidence, and can be caused by a collapse of underground mining shafts or naturally occurring underground cave system collapses, commonly called sinkholes.
They show elevation On a map, contour lines are the best method of showing relief ( the ups and downs of a land surface) (:
