Earth’s Surface: Unit 1. The Big Idea: Continuous processes on Earth’s surface result in the formation and destruction of landforms and the formation of soil. Unit 1 Lesson 1 Earth’s Spheres. What on Earth?.
The Big Idea:
Continuous processes on Earth’s surface result in the formation and destruction of landforms and the formation of soil.
Inner: solid, dense core made of Fe & Ni
Energy Budget- formed with movement of energy through Earth’s system.
Types of Weathering
Meander –curves & bends
Oxbow–a meander that is cut off
Delta- fan shaped pattern of deposited sediment
Shoreline- place where land & water meet
Groundwater-water below Earth’s surface
Unit 1 Lesson 4 BY Wind, Ice, & Gravity
Alluvial fan- fan shaped deposit that forms on dry land
Creep-extremely slow movement of material downslope.
Mudflow-rapid movement of a large mass of mud due to lots of rain
Acids and bases are on opposite ends of a measuring tool, the pH scale. At the center of the scale is the neutral zone. This scale receives extensive use in testing soil for farmers, gardeners and environmentalists.
