Earth Science Part 2

The moving or carrying away of sediments to a new location erosion
Rock made by the deposits of sediments that form layers. This kind of rock is where most fossils are found sedimentary rock
The wearing a way of sediments by water, waves, wind or ice weathering
Particles of matter could be sand, silt, shell and other substances that are carried then deposited sediment
Evidence of the past. They tell us about the Earth’s past environment and species as well as climate and the atmosphere fossils
A mark or depression made by pressure imprint
The dropping of sediments to a new location deposition
To last or retain certain characteristics over a long period of time preserve
Sticking together like glue cementation
The pressure of pressing together sediments compaction
Modern day or now present
Time before now past
A huge V-shaped valley made from moving water. The Grand Canyon was formed over the last 6 million years. Made by fast moving water carving out a V-shape. canyon
A mound of sand deposited by wind sand dune
Created by the deposition of sediment. Streams and rivers deposit sediments at the mouth. They are large flat area of land at the mouth of a river delta
Triggered by the movement of the earth’s plate earthquake
Fiery power deep from within the Earth volcano
Gravity or rain or both pulls rocks and mud down the mountain causing destruction landslide
An earthquake in the ocean causes these giant destructive waves tsunami
Earthquake, landslide, hurricane, tsunami and volcano rapid changes
Weathering, erosion and deposition slow changes
Very small in size, tiny, a speck, crumb particle
A huge moving body of ice that scrapes the landscape glacier
An area of land, or a land shape found on the surface of the Earth landform
made by moving water V-shaped valley
made by a glacier scraping through U-shaped valley
formed by deposition of minerals stalactites and stalagmites
