. Generalized landform categories

CategoryLandform typeDescription (refer to Fig. 2)
1Structural and volcanicLandforms resulting from tectonic (folding, faulting, uplift, subsidence) and volcanic (igneous intrusions, volcanic eruptions) processes
2WeatheringLandforms created through in situ decomposition and disintegration of rocks
3ErosionalLandforms left after erosion and transport of rock and sediments by wind, water, gravity and ice
4DepositionalLandforms created when sediments are deposited by wind, water, gravity and ice
