A gulf landform is the sea or ocean that reaches into land. When looking from outer space the land looks like it is indented with a large body of water that may look like an arm. As you can see in the pictures above, it is a beautiful sight from outer space.
Two of the most famous gulf landforms in the world are the Gulf of Mexico and the Persian Gulf. The Gulf of Mexico has water from the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea going around Florida into some of the Southern United States and Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico is also the largest gulf in the world.
The Persian Gulf is also another popular type of gulf. It is located between the Middle Eastern countries of Iran, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. It receives most of its water from the Indian Ocean.
A gulf is formed naturally throughout time. There are a few probable ways a landform is created. The first way is through deposits and erosions. The ocean has currents when can take sand and rocks away. The deposits have to go somewhere too.
The more probable way the gulfs have formed is through crustal movement and volcanoes. The Earth shifts it land even under the oceans. This leaves strange gaps through the lands creating gulf landforms.
The definition of a gulf is a larger than a bay arm of sea or ocean enclosed by large amounts of land.
