Erosion Erosion = the transport of sediments from weathering. *Gravity and Water are biggest factors* 1. Streams 2. Glaciers 3. Landslides 4. Waves
Streams Running water carries sediment downstream Scours bedrock Carves V-shaped gorges.
Vocabulary Suspended Load = particles suspended in stream. Bed Load = particles rolling on bottom (abrasion polishes rocks). Discharge = amount of water flowing past a given point.
Sheet Erosion = flows in sheet over flat land.
Rill and Gully
Stream Evolution 1.Youth = head, high elevation, steep slope, rapid erosion, V-shaped valley 2.Middle Age = Small streams merge to form tributaries, gentler slopes, stream begins to meander.
Old Age Gentler slope, meander widens, reaches mouth. Mouth = where stream meets ocean or lake. Sediment deposits form delta or alluvial fan.
EROSION- The transport of weathered materials….
Erosion and Deposition. Running Water is the most effective agent of erosion. Erosion is the process by which earth materials are moved by natural agents.
Guided Notes on Erosion and Deposition Section 7.2.
6.1 Running Water Oceans – 97 % Glaciers/ice – 2 % Freshwater - < 1 % Water cycle = the continuous circulation of earths water supply It is powered by.
True or False: The Earths surface has stayed the same for thousands of years.
The streams found in mountains are likely to have formed relatively recently.
Streams. Major US Rivers A drainage basin a.k.a. watershed is the area of land that drains to a particular lake, wetland or ocean.

V-shaped valleys. Rivers work hard. They continually erode and move materials downstream. Running water has little power to wear away rocks. However,
