BSL Geography Glossary - Truncated Spurs - definition

Definition: Truncated spurs are landforms that occur in glaciated areas. When a valley fills with a glacier, any land which is in the way of the moving glacier will be eroded away. Truncated spurs have steep sides which show this erosion. This erosion can also be caused by moving water.
