  •   Study   Slideshow
  • a glacier moves through a mountain range, moving large pieces of rock and carving out part of the mountain
    Erosion

  • a landslide quickly moves loose dirt and plants down a mountainside or hillside
    Erosion

  • a sandstorm creates sand dunes on the beach
    Deposition

  • Cooling lava from erupting volcanoes creates more land on the islands of Hawaii
    Deposition

  • A glacier melts and drops off sediments as it moves along its path
    Deposition

  • Explain how a Glacier is an example of ALL THREE!
    weathering-original mountain is carved away, erosion-movement of rocks and boulders; deposition: the rocks end up in a new place

  • a flood breaks off large rocks from the banks of a river
    Weathering
  •  15
  • Heavy rains move rocks and sediments from a hillside
    Erosion
  •  15
  • Erupting volcanoes in the ocean create new islands when the lava cools
    Deposition
  •  15
  • a slow-moving river drops off sediments at the mouth of a river, creating a delta
    Deposition
  •  15
  • an earthquake breaks a large piece of rock off an embankment
    Weathering
  •  15
  • Wind moves sand and sediments in a severe dust storm
    Erosion
  •  15
  • water cuts through a mountain, forming a canyon
    Weathering
  •  15
  • crashing waves break off rocks on a cliff at Cape Cod
    Weathering
  •  15
  • young rivers at the top of mountains carry rocks and sediment downstream
    Erosion
  •  15
  • when Mt. St. Helens erupted, the peak of the mountain broke off
    Weathering
  •  15
  • slow-moving rivers drop off sediments, creating salt marches and swamps
    Deposition
  •  15
  • As a river slows down, it drops off rocks and sediments along the riverbank.
    Deposition
  •  15
  • Water freezes in the cracks of a boulder, breaking the crack open even further
    Weathering
  •  15
  • Waves drop sand, creating sandbars in the middle of the ocean
    Deposition
  •  15
  • a mudslide moves rocks, plants, and sediments from the top of a mountain. (Bonus if you can you explain how it could be all THREE?
    Erosion
  •  25
  • A plant's roots grow into a sidewalk, causing the sidewalk to crack and break apart
    Weathering
  •  15
  • Limestone rock is chemically dissolved to form a cave.
    Weathering
  •  15
  • Sand fences help sand dunes grow bigger, helping to prevent erosion.
    Deposition
  •  15
  • The roots from plants keep soil in place and help prevent it from washing away. (Which agent does it help prevent?)
