Deserts Glaciers and Climate

Deserts, Glaciers, and Climate

  The desert landscape and the glacial landscape have a specific process in the formation of the different geological features.   Glacial landscape is known to be made from either glacial deposition or erosion.   The area that is under of above the glacial ice forms the erosional features while the ice melts, outwash deposits, met water deposits or tills forms the depositional features.   Desert landscapes are usually created through the process that includes volcanic eruptions, erosions, weathering, and tectonic forces. With long periods of climatic cycles dry and wet periods has really contributed to the starting of different dessert landform features which include different types of sedimentary deposits.
    Glaciers are like a river of ice that flows and it carries or move things that it comes into contact with. The movement is slow which can aggravate the terrains and cause valley walls that are steep sided, and can cause the bottom area to be really flat. If something is carried by glaciers it leaves deposition along the way it passes or within the areas where glaciers go. This process makes different glacial landscapes and they include Horns, Moraines, Glacial Erratic, Cirque, and Hanging Valleys.   Landscape features that include alluvial fans, stream channels, dry lakebeds or playas, dunes, and mountain landscapes are usually made or created under current and past climatic conditions, changing their planet volcanic eruptions, weathering, intrusions, and communities.
    A good example of glacial landscape would have to be a Moraine. It is usually seen down the mountain slopes or along the valleys which is created from glacial depositions. Moraines are created form the deposited debris or materials from a glacier. They are usually known or identified as long with sharp ridges made up of a mixture of gravel, sand, and rocks that have been deposited by a glacier that is melting.
