Several Ice Ages Last one ended about 14 000 years ago Upland glaciation north and west of Tees-Exe Line
Upland areas cold Lower temperatures No snow melt Snow builds up over many years Compacts Snow-Firn-Ice Ice is “plastic” It flows ..slowly
Lowland Britain A-Cairngorms B North-West Highlands (includes Fort William; the Nevis Range) C Loch Lomond and The Trossachs D Cumbria (Lake District) E Snowdonia X Rannoch Moor (major source of ice)
Glaciation affected most of the British Isles. Evidence for upland glaciation is still seen in the mountainous areas, such as the Highlands, Trossachs and Lake District. Slowly moving ice “flowed” through the landscape, greatly altering it. Plot and Learn the locations of areas A to E on the map.
