  • The landform at 11 is a(n): (a) kettle; (b) kame; (c) esker; (d) drumlin; (e) horn.
  • The material at 12 is: (a) till; (b) ground moraine; (c) drift; (d) BOTH A and B; (e) ALL of these.

  • The dominant agent which has shaped the landscape of diagram B is: (a) wind; (b) running water; (c) ground water; (d) glaciers; (e) waves.
  • The dominant process which has shaped the landscape of diagram B is: (a) eolian; (b) fluvial; (c) solution; (d) glaciation; (e) wave action.
  • The dominant agent shaping the landscape of diagram B now is: (a) wind; (b) running water; (c) ground water; (d) glaciers; (e) waves.
  • The dominant process shaping the landscape of diagram B now is: (a) eolian; (b) fluvial; (c) solution; (d) glaciation; (e) wave action.
     
  • A straight, U-shaped valley is most likely the result of: (a) sandblasting; (b) submarine erosion; (c) solution by ground water; (d) a rejuvenated surface stream; (e) valley glaciation.
  • A glacial feature which MAY be on land NEVER covered by a glacier is: (a) an outwash plain; (b) a drumlin; (c) an esker; (d) a recessional moraine; (e) impossible, so therefore, NONE of these.
  • Fiords are NOT: (a) bays; (b) related to glaciation; (c) associated with Norway; (d) wave deposits; (e) good harbors.
  • Alpine glaciers always extend below the snowline because: (a) above the snowline the glacier moves faster than it melts; (b) ice does not melt above the snowline; (c) glaciers form below the snowline; (d) the snowline is the lowest end of the zone of net wastage; (e) it is by definition the front of the ice.
  • The movement of a glacier is UNLIKE a stream in that it: (a) can flow upslope; (b) is not slowed by friction; (c) erodes its valley; (d) moves faster in the center; (e) ALL of these are differences.
  • One striking difference between the topography of most of the glaciated and unglaciated parts of the United States is that in the glaciated areas the ice has left more: (a) mountains; (b) rivers; (c) caverns; (d) lakes and swamps; (e) permafrost.
