Consider the following landforms:

  1. Oxbow lake
  2. Moraines
  3. Barchan

Which of the above is/are formed due to glacial action?

Answer: [A] 1 & 2 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. A canyon is a deep ravine between pairs of cliffs and is the most often carved landscape by the erosive activity of a river. A moraine is any glacially formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris that occurs in both currently and formerly glaciated regions. Barchan is a crescent shaped dune formed by aeolian action.
