Science wave+glacier

waves and glaciers quiz

Moraine A ridge, formed by a till deposited at the edge of a glacier
List the land features made by wave erosion Sea caves, sea arches, sea stacks, and wave cut cliffs
Friction Force that causes a wave to slow down and break when it reaches shallow water
Kettle lake Small depression that forms when ice is left in glacial till
Drumlin Long mound of till that is shaped in the direction of a glaciers flow
Barrier beach Storm waves pile up sand above sea level
Sand bar Long ridges of sand parallel to the shore
Spit A beach that projects like a finger out into the water
Loess Fine deposits that are valuable because it's fertile soil
Sand dunes Deposits left by wind erosion, found on beaches, deserts, and can be different sizes
What is the difference between loess and sand dunes Sand dune=deposit of wind blown sand Loess=particles made of clay and silt
Plucking When a glacier picks up rocks
Ice-ages Times when continental glaciers cover large parts of Earth's surface
How do glaciers move? Glaciers move from gravity and ice melting
When do glaciers deposit sediment? When glaciers melt
How do waves form? Waves form from wind that blows across ocean surface
How do glaciers form? Glaciers form when there are more snowfall then snow melt
What is the difference between continental glaciers and valley glaciers? Valley glaciers=snow builds up high in mountain valley Continental glaciers=ice covers large islands or continents
Deflation Process where wind picks up sediment and moves it
Till Sediments deposited directly by a glacier
