1 Earth’s Changing Surface Vocabulary

2 Arch An arching landform created by weathering and erosion. Delicate ArchLandscape Arch

3 Butte A steep, flat-topped hill created by erosion. Merrick Butte - within the Navajo Tribal Park North side of West Mitten Butte, along the Wildcat Trail

4 Earthquake Shaking or trembling of the earth caused by movement along a fault.

5 Erode To wear away. Eroding bluff edges

6 Erosion Removal of rocks and dirt by wind, water and ice. Erosion due to wave pounding at Venus Bay,wave poundingVenus Bay South Australia South Australia. A rock formation in the Altiplano, Bolivia sculptedAltiplanoBolivia by wind erosion.

7 Fault A break or fracture in the crust of Earth. The San Andreas FaultSan Andreas Fault

8 Geological Having to do with geology, the study of Earth.

9 Deposition The process of layering sediments.

10 Glacier Slow-moving masses of snow and ice that carry rock and dirt. Perito Moreno Glacier Patagonia Argentina

11 Uplift Upward movement of Earth’s crust. Kupe's SailKupe's Sail New Zealand

12 Volcano Vents in Earth's crust that lava and steam can travel through. Cleveland VolcanoCleveland Volcano in the Aleutian Islands of AlaskaAleutian IslandsAlaska

13 Weathering The process of breaking down rock and other materials into smaller pieces. Salt weathering of sandstone near Qobustan, Azerbaijan.sandstoneQobustanAzerbaijan. A freshly broken rock shows differential chemical weathering (probably mostly oxidation) progressing inward. This piece of sandstone was found in glacial drift near Angelica, New York sandstoneglacial driftAngelica, New York

14 Bryce Geology is an exemplary result of three major geological forces deposition, uplift, and erosion.

15 Weathering vs. Erosion Weathering breaks it down. Erosion carries it away.
