The process by which water, ice, wind, or gravity moves weathered rock and soil.
Process in which sediment is laid down in new locations.
Earth materials deposited by erosion.
Any one of several processes by which gravity moves sediment downhill.
Water that flows over the ground surface rather than soaking into the ground.
A tiny groove in soil made by flowing water.
A large channel in soil formed by erosion.
A channel through which water is continually flowing downhill.
A large stream.
A stream that flows into a larger stream.
The land area from which a river and its tributaries collect their water.
The ridge of land that separates one drainage basin from another.
Wide valley through which a river flows.
A looplike bend in the course of a river.
A meander cut off from a river.
A wide slopeing deposit of sediment formed where a stream leaves a mountain range.
A landform made of sediment that is deposited where a river flows into an ocean or lake.
Water that fills the cracks and spaces in underground soil and rock layers.
A calcite deposit that hangs from the roof of a cave.
A cone-shaped calcite deposit that builds up from the floor of a cave.
A type of landscape in rainy regions where there is limestone near the surface, characterized by caverns, sinkholes, and valleys.
The ability to do work or cause change.
Energy that is stored and available to be used later.
The energy an object has due to its motion.
The grinding away of rock by other rock particles carried in water, ice, or wind.
The amount of sediment that a river or stream carries.
The force that opposes the motion of one surface as it moves across another surface.
A type of movement of water in which, rather than moving downstream, the water moves every which way.
A large mass of moving ice and snow on land.
A long, narrow glacier that forms when snow and ice build up in a mountain valley.
A glacier that covers much of a continent or large island.
One time in the past when continental glaciers covered large parts of Earth's surface.
The process by which a glacier picks up rocks as it flows over the land.
The sediments deposited directly by a glacier.
Forms where a glacier deposits mounds or ridges of till.
A small depression that forms when a chunk of ice is left in glacial till.
Wave-washed sediment along a coast.
The movement of water and sediment down a beach caused by waves coming in to shore at an angle.
A beach formed by longshore drift that projects like a finger out into the water.
A deposit of wind-blown sand.
Wind erosion that removes surface materials.
A wind-formed deposit made of fine particles of clay and silt.
