Maple Grove, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/10/2015 -- The formation of the various geographical features on planet earth has an extremely exciting history associated with it. Gradual changes in the environment and tectonic activity create landforms like lakes, mountains, rivers, reefs, coasts, deserts and continents, etc. World landforms, an informative online portal, provides information about the various continents. There are overall seven continents: Asia, Africa, Australia, Antarctica, North America, South America and Europe. The two main characteristics of a continent are a) they are the largest land bodies and b) one of the seven. Though recognized as seven different continents, scientists believe that there are only six continents as Asia and Europe are connected, although separated by mountains.
Besides continents, some of the most interesting landforms are volcanoes. These are ruptures or openings on the crust of the earth which are caused due to the eruption of hot magma from the earth's core. Along with the magma, the opening also releases various gases, ash and minerals. There are different kinds of volcanoes including shield volcanoes, complex volcanoes, spatter cones, cinder cones and composite volcanoes. The eruption of a volcano results in emissions of water vapor, sulphur, sulphuric dioxide and carbon dioxide.
Talking more about the formation of various landforms, one of the representatives of World landforms stated, "There are many landforms on the earth's surface. They are actually on other planets as well. One thing is certain, there are major landforms that cover the world that we live on. World Landforms provides a list of landforms that we see almost every day like on TV or riding the bus home from school."
