Science Objective for November 13

Sediment Solid pieces of rock minerals or remains of plants or animals that range in size and can be transported by erosion.
Deposition process that occurs when sediment being carried by an erosional agent is over come by gravity and settles
Meander the bend or curve in a river as water flows along the path of least resistance.
Runofff Rain that is not absorbed by the ground instead flows downhill to lowlying areas and into streams and rivers
Groundwater water below earths surface that fills empty spaces in rock
Bedrock the solid layer of rock in a soil profile that lies beneath loose surface material.
Erosion The process that moves transports and deposits loosended rock particles.
Explain how erosion is different from weathering Weatherine creates sediment erosion carries it away.
Describe how each of the agents of erosion work to move...
Surface Water water can loosen and carry sediment away. streams, rain, rivers
Groundwater can become an acidic solution that dissolves and carries away underground limestone. Creates underground caves
Glaciers erodes the land by picking up sediment. Creates Fjordes
Waves Weathers rocks over time carries sediment away.
Wind Erodes land, carries away sand- creates sand dunes.
Relate how the agents of erosion also act as agents of weathering they break down sediment and carry it away
Karst Topography an area of land where the subsurface bedrock often made of limestone or marble partially dissolves by acidic water
Glaciers A large mass of flowing ice
Fjord a u shaped valley eroded by a lacier and filled with sea water
Deflation the gradual removal of loose surface material by wind resulting in shallow depressions
Dune a hill or mound created by wind deposition of sand.
