Definition:

1. Mountainous Region
- a series/group of mountains that are within a specific area or division, but not always fixed boundaries. A mountain
system or mountain belt is a group of mountain ranges which are formed by a variety of geological processes, but most of
the significant ones on Earth are the result of plate tectonics.

2. Hill
- A hill is a land form that extends above the surrounding terrain. It often has a distinct summit, although in areas with
scarp/dip topography a hill may refer to a particular section of flat terrain without a massive summit

3. Lake
- A lake is an area filled with water, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that
serves to feed or drain the lake. Lakes can be contrasted with rivers or streams, which are usually flowing

4. River
- A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. In some
cases a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water.

5. Waterfall
- A waterfall is a place where water flows over a vertical drop or a series of steep drops in the course of a stream or river.
Waterfalls also occur where melted water drops over the edge of a tabular iceberg or ice shelf.

6. Spring
- A spring is a water resource formed when the side of a hill, a valley bottom or other excavation intersects a flowing body
of groundwater at or below the local water table, below which the subsurface material is saturated with water

7. Canal
- A canal is a long, man-made strip of water used for irrigation or boat access to a bigger body of water

8. Gulf
-A gulf is a portion of the ocean that penetrates land. Gulfs vary greatly in size, shape, and depth. They are generally
larger and more deeply indented than bays. Like bays, they often make excellent harbors.

9. Peninsula
- A peninsula is a piece of land that is almost entirely surrounded by water but is connected to the mainland on one side.
Peninsulas can be very small, sometimes only large enough for a single lighthouse, for instance.

10. Valley
- A valley is a low area between hills or mountains often with a river running through it. In geology, a valley or dale is a
depression that is longer than it is wide. The terms U-shaped and V-shaped are descriptive terms of geography to
characterize the form of valleys.

11. Plateau
- A plateau is a flat, elevated land form that rises sharply above the surrounding area on at least one side. Plateaus occur
on every continent and take up a third of the Earths land. They are one of the four major land forms, along with mountains,
plains, and hills. Erosion can influence the shape of a plateau.

12. Straight
- A strait is a narrow body of water that connects two larger bodies of water. It may be formed by a fracture in an isthmus,
a narrow body of land that connects two bodies of water. A strait can also be formed by a body of water overflowing land
that has subsided or has been eroded.

13. Volcano
- A volcano is an opening in Earth's crust that allows molten rock from beneath the crust to reach the surface. This molten
rock is called magma when it is beneath the surface and lava when it erupts or flows from a volcano. Volcanoes erupt in
different ways, producing different land forms.
