For the test on 5/1/14

sediment The material moved by erosion
deposition the process by which sediment is laid down in a new location
erosion the process by which natural forces move weathered rock and soil from one place to another
water the major agent of the erosion that has shaped Earth’s surface
river formed when several streams flow together to form larger body of flowing water
trubutary a stream that flows into a larger stream
runoff the water that moves over the Earth’s surface after a rainfall
meander a looplike bend in the course of river
caves can be formed when groundwater and carbon dioxide create carbonic acid and erode limestone
oxbow lake a meander that has been cut off from the river.
glacier any large mass of moving ice and snow, which form u-shaped valleys
valley glacier a long, narrow glacier that forms when snow and ice build up high in mountain valleys
continental glacier covers much of a continent and is much larger and thicker than a valley glacier
The times in the past when continental glaciers covered large parts of the earth’s surface were called ice age
The Great Lakes were created by continental glaciers during the last ice age
As a glacier flows over the land, it picks up rocks in a process called plucking
till the sediments directly deposited by glaciers
The till deposited at the edges of a glacier forms a ridge called moraine
Explain the type of erosion that creates caves, including how carbonic acid forms, and the type of rock that makes up caves chemical weathering, carbon dioxide and rainwater, and limestone
Explain how glaciers form and compare and contrast valley and continental glaciers huge amount of snowfall and very cold, valley are slimmer and longer, continental are larger and wider.
