QuestionAnswer
1.The process where wind picks up sediment and moves it? deflection.
2.Types of glaciers? Valley Glacier and Continental glacier.
3.What is a valley glacier? Glacier that is formed in a valley or on a mountain.
4.What is a Continental glacier? Glacier that forms over a big peace of land.
5.How are waves form? Waves form from wind that blows across the ocean surface.
6.What are some land forms caused by water deposition? Deposition creates land forms such as alluvial fans and deltas.
7.What do rivers form? Meanders, oxbow lakes.
8. What is mass movement? Any one of several processes by which gravity moves sediment downhill.
9. What causes mass movement? Gravity.
10.What are the 4 forms of mass movement? Landslides, mudslides, slump, and creep.
11. How are glaciers form? Glaciers form where there is more snow fall than snow melt.
12. What are the forms of wave erosion? Sea caves, sea arches, sea stacks, and wave cut cliffs.
13. How do the glaciers move? The snow becomes compacted into ice, when the ice becomes thick enough the glacier starts to move down the hill because of gravity.
14. What type of land forms do wave erosion create. Sea caves, sea arches, sea stacks, and wave cut cliffs.
15. How are beaches form? As a wave reaches shore, it slows down and deposits sediment, forming a beach.
16. What is delta? A stream that flows into a ocean or sea.
17.What is ground water erosion? Chemical weathering, which results in caves or caverns.
18.What is ground water deposition? Water drips down from a caves roof, as the water evaporates, a deposit of calcite forms.
19.What are the 4 forms of water erosion? Valleys, waterfalls, flood plains, meanders, and oxbow lakes.
20. What is a land slide? The most destructive type of mass movement, which happens when rock and soil quickly slide down a steep slope.
21. What is a mud slide? Rapid downhill movement of a mixture of water, rock, and soil.
22. What is a slump? A mass of rock and soil suddenly slips down a slope.
23. What is a creep? The very slow downhill movement of rock and soil.
24. What is a waterfall? A waterfall is water that falls of a rock.
25. What is a sea cave? Type of cave formed primarily by the wave action of the sea.
26. What is a sea arch? A natural arch or natural bridge is a natural rock formation where a rock arch forms, with an opening underneath rock
27. What is a sea stack? a pillar like mass of rock detached by wave action from a cliff-lined shore and surrounded by water.
28. What is a wave cut cliff? The water has eroded the cliff away so it has a weathered look.
29. What is a long shore current? It is the current that goes to side on the shore.
30. What is a stalagmite? A cone shaped deposit that sticks up from the cave floor.
