Landscapes of glacial deposition


Exam questions on Landscapes of Glacial Deposition are often based on a diagram. Try to look at as many of these as you can so that you can recognise the glacial features when they are shown in different diagrams. Features of deposition are not usually large enough to show up on the maps that are likely to be used in the exam so you should not worry about recognising them from contour patterns.
