Paper instructions:
In the past few weeks we have moved from the study of weather and climatology, to the study of geomorpholgy, and the study of the formation of the landscapes that exist everywhere. These are shaped by both internal and external factors forming the current landscape.

I would like you to write a report on the geomorphology around areas where you live, or areas you have visited. Try to give four or five different examples and explain what shaped the landscape – internal or external factors, and for external shaping what was the predominant force (wind, river, ocean etc.). Also indicate whether aggradation or degradation was dominant.

PLEASE USE MT. ST. HELENS, CRATER LAKE, MT. RAINIER, MOHAVE DESERT AND NORTH UMPQUA RIVER AS EXAMPLES
