Landform

Feature of the solid surface of a planetary body / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A landform is a natural or anthropogenic[1][2] land feature on the solid surface of the Earth or other planetary body. Landforms together make up a given terrain, and their arrangement in the landscape is known as topography. Landforms include hills, mountains, canyons, and valleys, as well as shoreline features such as bays, peninsulas, and seas,[citation needed] including submerged features such as mid-ocean ridges, volcanoes, and the great ocean basins.

This conical hill in Salar de Arizaro, Salta, Argentina called Cono de Arita constitutes a landform.
