QuestionAnswerDetailsExplanation
What is weathering?
The breaking down of rocks, soil, and minerals as well as wood and artificial materials through contact with the Earth's atmosphere, water, and biological organisms. Weathering occurs in situ (on site), that is, in the same place, with little or no movement. Two important classifications of weathering processes exist
What is Physical Wheatering? the class of processes that causes the disintegration of rocks without chemical change. The primary process in physical weathering is abrasion (the process by which clasts and other particles are reduced in size). Physical weathering can occur due to temperature, pressure, frost etc. cracks exploited by physical weathering will increase the surface area exposed to chemical action, thus amplifying the rate of disintegration.
What is Chemical Weathering? weathering changes the composition of rocks, often transforming them is when water interacts with minerals to create various chemical reactions. a gradual and ongoing process as the mineralogy of the rock adjusts to the near surface environment. enhanced by such geological agents as the presence of water and oxygen, as well as by such biological agents as the acids produced by microbial and plant-root metabolism.
What is erosion?
the action of surface processes (such as water flow or wind) that removes soil, rock, or dissolved material from one location on the Earth's crust, and then transport it away to another location
the action of surface processes (such as water flow or wind) that removes soil, rock, or dissolved material from one location on the Earth's crust, and then transport it away to another location This natural process is caused by the dynamic activity of erosive agents, that is, water, ice (glaciers), snow, air (wind), plants, animals, and humans This natural process is caused by the dynamic activity of erosive agents, that is, water, ice (glaciers), snow, air (wind), plants, animals, and humans
Mass Wasting also known as slope movement or mass movement, is the geomorphic process by which soil, sand, regolith, and rock move downslope typically as a mass, largely under the force of gravity, but frequently affected by water.
Frost Action/Freeze thaw
What is a batholith a large mass of intrusive igneous rock (also called plutonic rock), larger than 100 square kilometres (40 sq mi) in area,[1] that forms from cooled magma deep in the Earth's crust.
What is a laccolith?
What is a Sill?
What is a Dike?
Batholiths are almost always made mostly of felsic or intermediate rock types, such as granite, quartz monzonite, or diorite (see also granite dome).
is a sheet intrusion (or concordant pluton) that has been injected between two layers of sedimentary rock.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:
