Name one type of landform?
Landforms are the physical features of the Earth's surface, like mountains, valleys, and plateaus. They can be created by forces such as erosion, tectonic plate movements, and even volcanoes. Landforms can also change over time due to these natural processes.
Mountain: a large natural elevation of the earth's surface rising abruptly from the surrounding level Canyon: a deep ravine between cliffs often carved from the landscape by a river Valley: a low area of land between hills or mountains, typically with a river or stream running through it
The highest landform on Earth is the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii. It is 33,000 feet above sea level and over 19,000 feet below the surface of the ocean. The lowest landform on Earth is the Dead Sea, located between Israel and Jordan. It is 1390 feet below sea level. The world's tallest waterfall is Angel Falls in Venezuela. It is 3,212 feet high, which is almost two times higher than the Empire State Building!
