Physical Landscapes: Glacial Landscapes in the UK
Glacier - ice on the ground made by layers of snow building up and compacted into ice throughout the years.
Ice age - a period of time when ice sheets are prevalent. Within ice ages, there are colder glacial periods (global temperature drops to 11°C-15°C) and warmer interglacial periods (ice retreats to higher, colder altitudes and latitudes).
Current ice age - the last glacial period peaked 20,000 years ago and, since 10,000 years ago, we have seen warming, thus, we are now in an interglacial period.
This GCSE Physical Landscapes module introduces glacial landscapes to your students, explaining:
- What are the four glacial processes?
- What are the different types of glacial landforms?
- What are the economic activities in glaciated upland areas?
- Why are there conflicts, and what management strategies can be done to solve them?
