    Hey. I'm doing geography this year too and it's probaby my strongest subject as well.

    For a U-shaped valley think of a v-shaped valley with the ice forming etc. then say that the ice descended downhill RAPIDLY and as it did this it tore out chunks of rock from the valley sides (plucking) and used these like sandpaper to wear away the valley floor (abrasion). This makes the valley DEEPER, WIDER and STRAIGHTER. When the ice melts a U-shaped valley (or glacial trough if your a geek :p:) is formed. Then draw the diagram of a v-shaped valley then a u-shaped valley making sure that it is deeper, wider and has a straighter appearance to highlight the difference.
    (It's a similar process to a corrie except it's to the valley not a hollow)

    Hope that helps.

    Thought I'd bring this up again. No point in starting a new one.

    How's everyone's studying going? What are you guys doing?

    I made pretty colourful notes today, and I'm very impressed with my waterfall formation drawing. This counts as studying, right?

    It does I'm sure of it :yep:
