Description:

This is an in-class exercise on fluvial landforms and topographic map reading. Students work in groups on a series of "classic" geomorphic maps and answer a suite of questions. The questions are designed to cover basic identification up to queries on chronology, process, role of climate and substrate, etc. After going through the classic maps, we pull out local topographic maps and find many of the same features and discuss how they relate to the local geology and glacial history. Designed for a geomorphology course Has minimal/no quantitative component
