TermDefinition
Glacier A large mass of moving ice and snow on land- it can cover continents- formed from thousands of years of accumuqlted snowfall
Ice Age Period of time on earth that has low temperatures
Sea Level The elevation of the ocean- Zero in elevation
Wisconsin Glacier A glacier that moved slowly south- anything in its path was picked up and tumbled around as the glacier acted like a gigantic snowplow
Landform A feature of topography formed by the processes that shape earth,s surface
Sediments Earth's materials deposited by erosion- makes up the earth's surface
Erosion The process by which water, ice, or gravity moves weathered rock and soil- the taking away of sediments
Glacial Debris Sediments from mountains, lakes, rivers, and valleys all were trapped under the ice- Glacial debris is the sediments that become part of the glacier itself and move with the glacier
Harbor Hill Advance One advance that contributed the most to what Long Island looks like today ( in harbor hill) - it occured 17,000 years ago
Ronkonkoma Advance Another advance that contributed the most to what Long Island looks like today (in Ronkonkoma)- it occured 60,000 years ago
Deposition The process in which sediment is laid down in a new location
Moraine A ridge formed by the till deposit at the edge of a glacier
Out wash Plain The lighter particles that were washed off and formed a plain to the south of the ice edge
Bluffs Large things that drop to the sound show layering sediments that were once contained in the ice of the glacier and now show us a cut way view of the moraine
Harbor Hill Moraine A moraine in Harbor Hill
Harbors indents in shore lines
Kettle Holes Large depressions in the ground
Kettle Lakes If the kettle holes were so deep that they came in contact with the water table they would fill with the water- these kinds of lakes are known as kettle lakes
What do we call the elevation of the ocean's surface? Sea Level
What is the flat sandy area found downhill from the moraine? Out wash plain
What is the name of the outwash plain found south of the Ronkonkoma Moraine? The South Shore Outwash plain
What is an area of permeable sediment that contains water? Aquifer
What is the name of the outwash plain found south of the Harbor Hill Moraine? The Terryville Outwash plain
What do we call a kettle hole that comes in contact with an aquifer and fills with water? Kettle Lake
What do we call materials that make up the earth's surface? Sediments
What do we call the advance of the glacier that occured 17,000 years ago? Harbor Hill Advance
What do we call the advance of the glacier that occured 60,000 years ago? Ronkonkoma Advance
BP means what? Before Present
What moraine was left 60,000 years ago? The Ronkonkoma Moraine
What is the name of the glacier that made Long Island? Wisconsin Glacier
What is the name of the glacier that occured 60,000 years ago? The Ronkonkoma Advance of the Wisconsin Glacier
What is the name of the glacier that occured 17,000 years ago? The Harbor Hill Advance of the Wisconsin Glacier
What is th name of the impermeable sediment found at the bottom of Long Island's aquifer? Clay
The taking away of sediments is called what? Erosion
What is made from large ice fingers digging into a moraine, and then filling with sea water? Harbors
What is a steep hill formed from the erosion of a headland or moraine by the sea? A Bluff
Kinetic Energy The energy an object has due to it's motion
Potential Energy Energy that is stored and available to be used later
Load The amount of sediment that a river or stream carries
Slope A slant going downhill on a landform
Abrasion The grinding away of rock by other rock particles carried in water, ice or wind
Turbulence A type of movement of water in which, rather than moving downstream, the water moves every which way
Friction The force that opposes the motion of one surface as it moves across another
Streambed The bottom of a stream or river
Banks A landslide sloping down alongside a river or stream
Mixture A material made of two or. ore substances that are not chemically boned together
Substance Anything that contains only one pure type of material
Elements A substance that cannot be broken down into simpler substances- the building blocks of matter(there are 118 of these)
Homogeneous Mixture A mixture where the substances are distributed evenly throughout the mixture
Heterogeneous Mixture A mixture where the substances are unevenly distributed throughout the mixture
Meter The SI unit that measures the distance between two points
Volume The amount of space an object occupies
Physical Property Any characteristic of a material that can be observed, measured
Density The amount of mass an object has compared to its volume
SI Units The system of International Standard metric measurements
Volume The space a substance occupies
Mass The amount of matter in an object
Weight The force an object exerts because of gravity
Compound When two or more different atoms chemically combine to form a new substance
Molecule When two or more atoms combine to form a new substance
Atom The basic particle that makes up an element
Chemistry The study of matter
Water is a substance
Milk is a homogeneous mixture
Oatmeal is a heterogeneous mixture
Grams The SI Unit that measures mass
Liters The SI Unit that measures volume
