Hi folks, we are having a discussion on the new OCR A GCSE ning as to the finer intricacies of the difference between these things - various internet and textbook sources (including Waugh!) have contradicted each other.
Anyone confident enough to attempt a clear explanation of the difference between them?
Or have a copy of Small (or failing that, Collard's Physical Geography of Landscape)?
This sort of thing drives me barmy!!
I know that the reality is, surely, that the explanation of their formation and clear understanding of the processes is the important thing - there's no way surely the examiners would expect GCSE students to know the finer detail of the differences between zeugen, yardangs and pedestal rocks? And in any case, real landforms show far more variety than textbooks suggest - with spectrums and grey areas - e.g. how elongated does a pedestal rock have to be before it qualifies as a zeugen (or yardang as the case might be!!)?
But I still want to know!
