Consider the following Landforms:

  1. Ox-Bow Lake
  2. Cirque
  3. Ventifacts

  Which of the above is/are examples of lacustrine deposits?

Answer: [B] 1 Only

An oxbow lake is a U-shaped body of water that forms when a wide meander from the main stem of a river is cut off, creating a free-standing body of water. Cirque is a valley formed by the glacial action. Ventifacts are rocks that have been abraded, pitted, etched, grooved, or polished by wind-driven sand or ice crystals; it is thus an example of Aeolian deposits. Lacustrine deposits are sedimentary rock formations which formed in the bottom of ancient lakes. Lacustrine deposits form in all lake types including rift graben lakes, oxbow lakes, glacial lakes, and crater lakes.
