Transcript of Science Project

Glaciers
a slowly moving mass or river of ice formed by the accumulation and compaction of snow on mountains or near the poles.
Swamps
an area of low-lying, uncultivated ground where water collects; a bog or marsh.
Desert
a dry, barren area of land, especially one covered with sand, that is characteristically desolate, waterless, and without vegetation.
Caves
a large underground chamber, typically of natural origin, in a hillside or cliff.
Volcanoes
a mountain or hill, typically conical, having a crater or vent through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapor, and gas are being or have been erupted from the earth's crust.

Speghazzini Glacier
This glaciers live in the southern part of Chile called the Patagonia. In the patagonia this big glaciers that has shrunk over time due to the climate change and sea level rise. The ground was ice-scoured with barely any vegetation
Villarica
Villarica is one of the most active volcanoes, rising above the lake and town of the same name. The volcano is also known as Ricapillan, a mapuche word meaning "House of the Pillan" or "House of Spirit"
Iguazu
Iguazu is located in Argentina right in the boarder where Paraná Plateau is. Approxomitley half of the river's flow falls into a long and narrow chasm called the Devil's Throat.
Atacama Desert
The atacama desert is a huge piece of land that covers 1,000 kilometers in Cile. It's located in the west of the Andes Mountains. It's known one of the driest place in the world. Some places haven't even recieved rain.
Marble Caves
Marble caves are located in the border of Chile - Argentina. (Patagonia Andes) They were formed in about 6,000 years by waves crashing against calcium carbonate digged in making the caves.
Temperate Rainforest
coniferous or broadleaf forests that occur in the temperate zone and receive high rainfall.
Valdivian Temperate Rainforests
It's located in Chile but trails o into Argentina as well. The forests was named after the city Valdivia. These forests are known by their dense understories of bamboos and ferns.
Cordillera
a system or group of parallel mountain ranges together with the intervening plateaus and other features, especially in the Andes or the Rockies.
Cordillera Province
One of the six provinces in the Santiago Metropolitan Region of central Chile. It's topography includes a small area of Chile's central valley, glaciers, rivers, volcanoes, and the Andes range.
Sand Dune
a mount, hill or ridge of sand that lies behind the part of the beach affected by tides. They are formed over many years when windblown sand is trapped by beach grass or other stationary objects.
Valle De La Muerte
The biggest sand dune in Chile. It's located 2 km from San Pedro de Atacama. People like to sandboard in the dunes.
Black Smoker
a geothermal vent on the seabed that ejects superheated water containing much suspended matter, typically black sulfide minerals.
East Pacific Rise
It located near Easter Island, where the east Pacific meets the Chile rise at the easter island and Juan Fernandez microplates. It Trends off to the east where it subducts under the South American Plate at the Peru - Chile trench along the coast as Southern Chile.
Fossil beds
The remains or impression of a prehistoric organism preserved in petrified form or as a mold or cast in rock.
Abanico Formation
Mainly made of cenozoic volcanic and continental volcaniclastic rocks forming a N-S trending continuos chain. It's located in front of the Andean Cordillera
Craters
a large, bowl-shaped cavity in the ground or on the surface of a planet or the moon, typically one caused by an explosion or the impact of a meteorite or other celestial body.
Monturoqui Crater
It's located in the south of the Salar de Atacama, in the Antofagsta Region; exposed in the surface. It happened approximatley 660,000 years ago.
Subpolar Forest
a large area covered chiefly with trees and undergrowth.
Magellanic Subpolar Forests
It's part of Chile and Argentina. It is a temperate broadleaf and mixed forests eoregion, and contains the world's southern-most forests.
Continental Divide
A continental divide is a drainage divide on a continent such that the drainage basin on one side of the divide feeds into one ocean or sea, and the basin on the other side either feeds into a different ocean or sea, or else is endorheic, not connected to the open sea.
The Great Divide
The most prominent of all the dividers. It tends to follow a line of high peaks along the main ranges of the Rocky Mountains and Andes, at a generally much higher elevation than the other hydrological divisions.
Subduction Zone
are sites of high rates of volcanism, earthquakes, and mountain building.
Nazca Plate
It goes along the Peru - Chile Trench, of the Nazca Plate. It's named after the Nazca region of southern peru.
