Conditions of Use
What do mountains, moraines, volcanoes have in common? They are all landforms!!! Landforms are physical features on earth surface. The type of landform I’m going to talk about are moraines. They smell like mud and ice. They look like mounds of ice and soil all together.
Moraines are formed because of glaciers sliding. Glaciers carry rock and soil with them. Then they melt and leave behind a trace. Most of Denmark is covered by moraines.
Till is something very similar to moraines. Till is the same thing except they are formed from the glaciers from the ice age but moraines are from the glaciers currently existing.
You find these landforms in the alps or where glaciers are located. The reason for this is that they are left by glaciers and if there is no glacier it is not a moraine.
The most famous moraine is in Denmark. All of Denmark, like I said, is all one moraine.
Moraines help people learn where the glaciers were during the ice age. They help in science.
