Lesson 2 Earth

Earth Changes Lesson 2

folding the process by which Earth's crust responds to pressures, resulting in a surface that has folds; the Appalachian Mountains were formed this way
faulting the formation of cracks in the Earth's surface due to pressure that forces Earth's crust to slip down or to thrust upward along the cracks.
dome the result of magma forcing Earth's crust upward, much like a bubble, causing a mountain to form
breakwater a structure built with concrete or rock to protect the shore from erosion
seawalls structures built just behind the shoreline to help keep the ocean away from the shore
jetties barriers usually built in pairs that extend from both sides of the mouth of a river into an ocean or lake
weathering the process where rock is dissolved, worn away, or broken down into smaller pieces
erosion the gradual removal and transportation of material from the Earth's crust
