Classical Glacial Features – The Matterhorn Glaciers Teacher Notes ; these few pictures were taken in August 2006 – they illustrate some of the common features associated with glaciers. The inserted picture of the Matterhorn has been taken from the internet as the day was inadequately clear for a good photograph. Key words have been added to each slide. The presentation could be developed further. Paul Routledge
