QuestionAnswer
What is a destructive mechanical or chemical process that breaks down rocks? weathering
Flat land forms that have high elevation plateaus
This is formed when weathering breaks rocks into smaller pieces sediment
Moving water, wind and ice carry weathered rocks away during this process erosion
Connected points on a map that have the same elevation contour lines
Location, shape, and elevation help define these surface features
This is where caves, steep cliffs and sand dunes often form along shorelines near beaches
The Earth's crust consists mainly of this solid rock
The rocky outer layer of the Earth's surface crust
Where salt water is most often found relative to dry land coastlines
Some causes of mechanical weathering ice, wind, moving water, and plant and animal activity
This shows the shape of surface features and their elevations topographic map
Erosion and weathering are examples of these destructive forces
Volcanic activity is an example of this a constructive force
These are the layers of the continental margin from top to the bottom The Shelf, The Slope and The Rise
How can chemical weathering take place below Earth's surface? Water seeps into cracks and dissolves the minerals in the rock
Sand and other small sediments are moved by erosion and settled by this Deposition
