With such a limited area and range of rock type, Malta cannot provide anything approaching a representative sample of the landforms which occur in the Mediterranean Basin. However, few geomorphological features can be considered unique to the Mediterranean, since they are shared either by the more humid temperate climates to the north or the semi-arid regions to the south and east. The wied, a hybrid between the humid temperate and semi-arid climates, might be considered a truly Mediterranean landform and is the predominant feature in maltese geomorphology
