1 JEOPARDY Weathering and Erosion

2 AAAA BBBB CCCC DDDD EEEE

3 Category the process that breaks down rocks into smaller and smaller fragments.

4 Category weathering

5 Category Rocks break down into small pieces called

6 Category sediments

7 Category Plants and ice wedging are examples of which type of weathering?

8 Category mechanical

9 Category List one example of mechanical weathering

10 Category Plant wedging Ice wedging

11 Category Oxidation is an example of which type of weathering?

12 Category chemical

13 Category How are canyons formed?

14 Category By erosion

15 Category How are alluvial fans and deltas similar?

16 Category They are both fan shaped and made by stream erosion

17 Category thick deposits of windblown fine sediment

18 Category loess

19 Category a large mass of moving ice that forms by the compacting of snow by natural forces.

20 Category glacier

21 Category all of the materials carried and deposited by a glacier.

22 Category Glacial drift

23 Category Materials carried by a stream

24 Category load

25 Category The process in which eroded material is dropped

26 Category deposition

27 Category Creep, landslide, rock falls, and mud flows are all types of _________

28 Category Mass movement

29 Category The process of water freezing and thawing between cracks in pavement.

30 Category Ice wedging

31 Category reacts with minerals and dissolves main minerals such as limestone.

32 Category Carbonic acid

33 Category occurs when a material such as iron is exposed to oxygen and water.

34 Category oxidation

35 Category Mechanical weathering is most common in what type of climate?

36 Category Cold climates

37 Category Chemical weathering is more common in what type of climate?

38 Category Warm, wet climate

39 Category the wearing away and removal of rock or sediment

40 Category erosion

41 erosion of land by wind Category 4 500

42 deflation Category 4 500

43 Category makes pits and rocks to produce smooth, polished surfaces

44 Category abrasion

45 Category wet sediment flows downhill over the ground surface.

46 Category mudflow

47 Category loose rock falls down steep slope

48 Category Rock fall

49 Category the way sediments slowly inch their way down a hill, common where freezing and thawing occur.

50 Category creep

51 Category sudden and rapid movement of a large amount of material downslope. Can carry away plants and animals.

52 Category Landslide
