  • Glacial erosion exposes minerals which are easy to exploit
  • Fiord coastline provide good fishing grounds because they are deep and sheltered
  • Glacial lakes provided natural water – ways e.g. Great lakes of North America
  • Glaciated uplands provide suitable grazing lands as they form fine benches on which summer pastures grow e.g. in Switzerland 
  • Waterfalls formed by rivers which flow through hanging valleys provide sites for generating hydroelectricity
  • Alluvial fans and out-wash plains are good sites for agriculture
