Medium-Mountain Relief

Medium-Mountain Relief

 

relief characterized by the smoothed peaks of mountain ranges, often with relicts of leveling plains, and by a wide distribution of eluvium and weathering mantle. Medium mountains usually do not rise above the past or present snowline and therefore do not have mountain-glacier landforms. Examples of medium-mountain relief can be seen in the Southern Urals and in the Crimean Mountains.
