Name one type of landform?
Landforms are natural features of the Earth's surface, such as mountains, plateaus, and valleys. Landforms are created by both slow and fast processes, including erosion, weathering, and tectonic plate movement. Landforms can affect the way people live and use the land around them.
Erosion: The gradual destruction of landforms by the action of water, wind, ice, and gravity.
Deposition: The process in which sediment is laid down and builds up landforms.
Weathering: The process in which rocks are broken down and changed by wind, rain, and other elements of weather.
