Geomorphology is the scientific study of (natural) landforms and the geological processes that shape them. A distinction is made between endogenous processes, which constitute the landscape from the Earth, and exogenous processes, which form the landscape from the atmosphere. An example of an endogenous process is volcanism; erosion is an exogenous process.

On a geomorphological map is indicated which part of a particular area is created by rivers, or by the influence of the wind, mass movements, ice, vulcanism, etc.
