BSL Geography Glossary - Mountain - definition

Definition: A mountain is a natural structure with steep or sloping sides. Mountains can be undulating or very steep and can have a variety of different shapes. On a map, contour lines are round and become closer together to show steep ground or a mountain. The colours also change on the map to show different land heights - brown and green shows low ground, while red shows higher ground.
