1 Extra-Terrestrial Geography Exploring examples of physical geography on planets other than Earth. Intended as a motivational tool for delivering the nature of physical processes (including fluvial and volcanic) that occur on the surface of the Earth. Mr. Nathan Morland

2 Extra-Terrestrial Geography Look closely. What can you see? Fluvial Networks Meanders Braiding River Valleys Impact Craters Volcanic activity Ice Caps At closer inspection Erosion (fluvial, glacial?, aeolian)

3 Where is the Geography? Olympus Mons Extinct Martian Volcano Where would it have formed if it was on Earth? What physical processes would have been involved if it had have formed on Earth? How would it impact upon the lives of people living close to where it may have formed?

4 Examples applied to Earth Amazon River, Brazil Valles Marineris Yogi Rock- Pathfinder landing site Alpine Erratic. Olympus Mons Popocatepetl - Mexico

5 Points to Remember Always relate the images and thinking back to examples found on Earth. Stay focused on the intended outcome of the tasks and guide the pupils appropriately. Allow your pupils to get excited and ask you lots of questions. Also allow for lots of discussion and healthy chatter.
