In this section you'll revise:
Some useful advice would be to take notes while you watch. Sometimes I'll draw diagrams, you'd do well to attempt to do the same as we go along and then put the labels on from memory after the clip has ended. You can always go back and re-watch it to see if you're right. Some people prefer to write the answer in full underneath the diagrams, others to label the pcitures, you need to find the way that is best for you.
In this clip you can find out how to easily identify the most common features of glaciation.
In this video tour you can explore a glaciated environment. Make sure you get a 1:50,000 Fort William map so you can practise by matching the features I point out to the grid references. This will help you to see the link between the contours and the shape of the landscape. Pause at any time by clicking on the video and use the arrow keys to explore the landscape or investigate information points and pink balloons I've included in the tour. Use Ctrl+arrow keys to turn or look up and down. Have fun!
In this clip you'll revise how a corrie is made.
As you'll have learned in teh Corrie Formation clip, these two diagrams can be attached to your understanding of how a corrie forms to explain how an Arete and a Pyramid Peak form.
In these two clips I'll remind you about the main processes involved in the formation of a U-Shaped Valley.
Hanging valleys are easiest to understand as the product of a U-shaped valley. See if you can use this aerial picture to identify some truncated spurs and hanging valleys. The map underneath it matches the starting position of the aerial viewer.
