Learn about different landforms and the various characteristics that make them distinct from one another in this multimedia gallery from WGBH. Landforms are natural formations on Earth’s surface that are found in locations across the planet. Landforms look different when they are viewed from the ground (ground-level view) and from above (aerial view). Students can use the media in this gallery to explore, identify, and compare ground and aerial views of various landforms to help them begin to identify representations of landforms on Earth.
