Topology and its characteristics
The configuration of the land's surface is referred to as topography. Thus, topography is important from a pedologic standpoint because it has a significant effect on the distribution of energy and matter encountered by soils in the landscape. The relief (relative variations in elevation), aspect (position with respect to compass coordinates), and general shape and connectivity of land surfaces make up an area's topography.
