Glacial Processes Assignment Instructions

For your initial post, research and find a ‘before’ and ‘after’ image of a glaciated landscape (I provided an example below). Next, in the form of short paragraphs summarize where and when the photographs were taken and describe the post-glacial features/landforms seen in your image (these are described in detail in reading this week – “U” shaped valleys, cirques, moraines, etc.). Note that you will likely not be able to see every post-glacial feature in your image, but do your best to identify what you can. Some of you are well-versed in photoshop and image processing. You are welcome to draw arrows, circles, or otherwise highlight the features in the images to enhance your description but this is not a requirement. Be sure to upload a copy of your “before and after” images so I an review them and your descriptions for accuracy.
