Def. an "elongated depression between hills or mountains" [42] is called a valley. Geomorphology is the study of landforms and the processes that shape them, past and present. These erosional remnants have been given a number of names, most commonly ‘inselberg’. The hummocks are caused by repeated freezing of the ground in a process known as frost heaving. The upwind or upcurrent side has a gentle slope, and the downwind side lies at the angle of repose. trap (oil) - A sedimentary or tectonic structure that impedes the upward movement of oil and gas and allows it to collect beneath the barrier. travel-time curve - A curve on a graph of travel time versus distance for the arrival of seismic waves from distant events.

Both features straddled ancient inland lakes, both exist in harsh, desert-like environments, both are singularities that stand out in their respective settings, and both are surrounded by incredibly flat land surfaces. My main expertise and research centers on quantifying the temporal aspects and interplay between hinterland deformation and basin evolution. Studies indicate that the Himalayan rivers are different in many respects from those of the Indian Peninsula.

For a 30m DEM, the sample interval is 30m. I study modern river networks using zircon U-Pb chronology to assess what factors are represented by sand provenance, such as: drainage area, variable erodibility, and zircon fertility of different source rocks. Ant Hill Garnets - tiny garnets that ants haul to the surface and discard on their anthill.

Geography deals with national borders and the lines that humans have made on the earth. And what A third possibility is that the "Cliff" existed before the impact, but there is no evidence of the ejecta having overlain the Cliff, though the ejecta flow extends beyond the Cliff for at least a kilometer. the impact event itself. In the early 1960s the cycle theory proposed by Davis was much criticized, and with it the concept of the planation surface.
