Abstract from DBPedia
    A landform is a natural or artificial feature of 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, plateaus, canyons, and valleys, as well as shoreline features such as bays, peninsulas, and seas, including submerged features such as mid-ocean ridges, volcanoes, and the great ocean basins.

    地形(ちけい、英語:landform)は、地表面の起伏(凹凸)の形態である。 地形学では、特定の成因により形成された特定の形態的特徴をもつ部分ごとに区分して、それぞれに特定の地形分類用語を与えており、それらを地形種、地形単位という。
