A short ridge connecting two higher elevations or mountains; the pass over such a ridge.
An exposed pass in a mountain range.
a low spot or pass along a cirque or an arete.
The saddle-backed region occurring between two anticyclones and two depressions, arranged alternatively.
A depression or pass in a mountain range.
As two cirque glaciers converge, they form an arete. If they should continue to converge and overtop the ridge separating them, they will erode the ridge in the center. The result is a low pass (col) in the middle of what was formerly an arete.
a high mountain pass; a dip or saddle in a mountain ridge, often between two peaks.
a high valley between 2 mountains. It is basically where one mountain ends and another one begins.
Pass between two peaks or a gap in a ridgeline.
In describing landforms, a pass between two valleys is sometimes termed a col. In describing molecular potential energy functions, this term is commonly used to describe analogous features of the PES; a col is the region around a saddle point having negative curvature along one axis and positive curvature along all orthogonal axes.
A hollow or saddle between hills.
Fr., from L. "neck"] 1. A high pass. 2. A ridge between two higher peak
a depression in summit line
a saddle in an arête formed where a glacier overrode the ridge
The saddle-backed region occurring between two highs and two lows, arranged alternately.
a pass between mountain peaks
pass high in the mountains
L: neck] the low point on a ridge joining two peaks. Glaciologists reserve this term for gaps of glacial origin, but others use it much more generally.
a steep, high pass.
A high mountain pass that forms when part of an arête erodes.
A ridge between two mountains.
A low point in a mountain range providing passage, a saddle or pass.
Mountain pass, hill or climb. French.
A dip in a ridge that forms a small, high pass.
Saddle like depression found between two mountain peaks. Formed when two opposing cirque glaciers back erode an arête.
The lowest point on a ridgeline connecting two peaks
