Monday Geology Picture: U-Shaped Glacial Valley, Seward Peninsula, Alaska
When glaciers erode landscapes, they often leave behind characteristic U-shaped valleys. This week’s Monday Geology Picture shows a U-shaped glacial valley on the Seward Peninsula in Alaska. This valley is located just outside of the gold mining town of Nome. Does anyone else have good pictures of U-shaped valleys?
