Geomorphic Component – Mountains Technical Terms

Geomorphic Component – Mountains: A group of fundamental, three dimensional pieces or areas of mountains. In descending elevational order, the geomorphic components of a simple mountain are the mountaintop (roughly analogous to the crest or summit); mountainflank (the long slope along the sides of mountains which can be further subdivided into three portions based on the relative slope location: upper third-, middle third-, or lower third mountainflank); free face (rock outcrop); and the mountainbase (colluvium / slope alluvium apron at the bottom of the mountain).
