Latitude, Longitude, Parallel and Great Circle Latitude: ″ Latitude is the Angular distance measure North (N) and South (S) of the equator. We can project the line from the point P from the earth surface to the centre of the Earth. ″ The angle between this line and equator plane is the measure of the latitude… Read More »

Mountains, Plateaus, Plains and its Different Types

Mountains, Plateaus, Plains and its Different Types In general, geomorphic processes that originate within Earth, called endogenic processes result in an increase in surface relief, while the exogenic processes, those that originate at Earth’s surface, tend to decrease relief.  Igneous and tectonic processes constitute the endogenic geomorphic processes. Exogenic processes consist of various means of… Read More »
