Clues

  • Cold mountenous winds- the dense air flows down from the mountains to the lowlands chilling the ground as it passess over it. (9, 5)
  • Glacially depositednmaterial that is unsorted, different sizes and has no distinct layer. (12, 8)
  • Ground showing a pattern of stones, fissures, and vegetation, typically forming polygons, rings, or stripes caused by repeated freezing and thawing (9, 6)
  • Have steep sides and a flat bottom also known as U-shaped valleys (7, 7)
  • Material dropped in glacial lakes, along lake shorelines and as lake deltas. (9, 5)
  • Movement of ice as it becomes too deep so unstable. It collapses and flows outwards. (9, 4)
  • Rock fractures due to pressure release, exfoliation and dilation. (6, 4, 10)
  • Rock that has been plucked and made smooth by glaciers. Upstream side (stoss) is smooth because of abrasion but the downstream side (lee) is steeper and rougher because of plucking. (5, 9)
  • The lines of material lying near the valley sides. (7, 8)
  • Where two two glaciers meet and the the lateral moraines of each join. It is found down the centre (6, 8)
