Land Forms and Water Forms
Transcript of Land Forms and Water Forms
in the Philippines
Definition: The major land masses of the earth. According to tradition most people speak of seven continents on the planet. However, geologically there are six large distinct land masses on the earth so many geographers and scientists refer to six.
Those who consider there to be seven continents refer to a separate Europe and Asia (divided at the Ural Mountains in western Russia) while those who prefer six continents refer to the joined land mass (and single tectonic plate) as Eurasia. In some countries, the Americas are combined into one continent.
The six continents include Africa, Antarctica, Australia, Eurasia, North America, and South America. The seven continents include Africa, Antarctica, Australia, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.
- a large continuous area of land, as opposed to seas or islands
A water construction is a body of water or a section of a body of water which is formed or demarcated by deliberate human construction. This includes artificial bodies of water as well as bounded or constructed areas on natural bodies or water (or within an artificial body of water).
standards belonging to 'water form': artificial pond, canal, harbor, swimming pool.
1. an opening in the earth's crust from which molten lava, rock fragments, ashes, dust, and gases are ejected from below the earth's surface
2. a mountain formed from volcanic material ejected from a vent in a central crater
[from Italian, from Latin Volcānus Vulcan1, whose forges were believed to be responsible for volcanic rumblings]
1. a group of islands
2. a sea studded with islands
[C16 (meaning: the Aegean Sea): from Italian arcipelago, literally: the chief sea (perhaps originally a mistranslation of Greek Aigaion pelagos the Aegean Sea), from archi- + pelago sea, from Latin pelagus, from Greek pelagos]

An elongated lowland between ranges of mountains, hills, or other uplands, often having a river or stream running along the bottom.
-An extensive area of land drained or irrigated by a river system.
-A depression or hollow resembling or suggesting a valley, as the point at which the two slopes of a roof meet.
-a large continuous extended of lands.
Bodies of water
-any significant accumulation of water usually covering the earth.
is a large land form that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak.
is a land form that extends above the surrounding terrain. Hills often have 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
extensive tracts of level or almost level treeless countryside; prairies
is a body of saline water that composes a large port of a planet hydrosphere
is a body of saline water partly of fully enclosed by land.
A body of water par
enclosed by land but with a wide
mouth, affording access
to the sea: the Bay of Biscay.
- An area of land,
such as an arm of prairie partially enclosed by woodland, that resembles in shape or formation a partially enclosed body of water.
is a body of water of relatively still water surrounded by land apart from a river.
is a natural watercourse usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, a lake, a sea, or another river.
one of the large landmass of the earth
is an opening or rupture in a planet, surface or crust.
sometimes called an island group or island chain.
is a wide body of water found between islands.
The following are examples of Landmass and Bodies of water
