The Southeastern Slope of Cox Tor
The Southeastern Slope of Cox Tor
The patterns of light and darker grass on the foreground terrace is caused by hummocks, mounds of raised earth. Nobody really knows how these were formed, but it is believed that it is some form of periglacial process. In the ice age Dartmoor was never covered by ice sheets but spent a long time under very cold (periglacial) conditions.
