Report

On this mind map the landforms for periglacial and fluvioglacial are the wrong way round. Patterned ground, pingo, ice wedge and solifluction lobe are found in periglacial areas.The landforms formed by melt water such as esker, kame etc are fluvio-glacial landforms (NOT FLUVIO-GLACIAL as the resource states) . Hope this doesn't confuse anyone! This resource should be removed from this site as it is highly inaccurate.
