2Erosion and Deposition What is the major agent of erosion that shapes Earth?What are the four types of mass movement and how are they alike?How are they different?Moving Water!!!Landslide, Mudflow, Creep, and SlumpThey are all caused primarily by gravity.They differ in water content and in how they move.
3Erosion and Deposition Very slow movement of rock and soil is called__________.Sudden slippage of large chunks of land in a large mass is called ___________.Mass movement of runny, liquid mud is called ___________.CreepSlumpMudflow
4Erosion and Deposition When sediment is laid down in a new location it is called ______________.What is the large deposit of sediment left behind where a stream leaves a mountain range called?Deposition Alluvial Fan
5Erosion and Deposition The process by which natural forces move weathered materials from one place to another is called ____________.The process by which wind removes surface materials is called ___________.ErosionDeflation
6Erosion and Deposition Sediment deposited where a river flows into a lake or ocean is called a __________.Heavy rains can cause a river to flow over its banks and create a ________ _________.DeltaFlood Plain
7Erosion and Deposition Water that moves over Earth’s surface is called ___________.How much erosion a river can cause is dependent on three factors: _________, ___________, and ______________.RunoffSlope, volume of flow, and streambed shape
8Erosion and Deposition Put these in order from smallest to largest: river, stream, rill, gully.Which of these four always have water running in them?Rill, gully, stream, riverStream and river
9Erosion and Deposition A loop-like bend in a river is called a _____________.When a meander gets cut off from a river by damming up the ends, an _________ ______ is formed.MeanderOxbow lake
10Erosion and Deposition A area of wave-washed sediment along a coast is called a ___________.Beach sediment moves with the current in a process called ____________ __________.BeachLongshore drift
11Erosion and Deposition Waves are constantly changing the coastline. This is due to ___________ and _____________.How are sand dunes formed?Erosion and depositionSand is deposited by wind. The wind continues to blow the sand and build up dunes. Deflation is most active in the desert because there is little growing to stop the wind.
12Erosion and Deposition How are beaches formed?A beach that projects out into the water is called a _______.Rivers and streams carry eroded materials to the ocean. Longshore drift deposits these sediments to create beaches.spit
13Erosion and Deposition A large mass of ice that moves slowly over land is called a _________.The two types of glaciers are ______ and _____________.GlacierValleyContinental
14Erosion and Deposition Which type of glacier spreads out over an island or continent?How do glaciers form?Glaciers pick up rocks in a process called_________.ContinentalMore snow falls than melts. The snow must reach a depth of at least 30 to 40 meters.Plucking
