  1. karst
  2. 2 terraces
  3. kettle
  4. 2 glacier types
  5. glacier deposits
  1. a steep-sided hole formed by gradual melting of large ice block left behind by glacier with sediment accumulated "kettle lake" when it has water
  2. b long-term solution weathering of limestone bedrock by surface and ground water
  3. c alluvial and bedrock
  4. d loose or fragmented rock - any size, eroded from underlying bedrock or deposited by previous glacial advances. Meltwater stream carries fine grained material
  5. e Alpine (mountain) and continental (ice sheets and caps)

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. deep, V-shaped channels. Develop due to surface and subsurface flow
  2. most extensive
  3. disintegration - no chemical reactions, produces smaller particles from larger ones, rock breaks continuously as stress is exerted, preserves the chemical characteristics of rock
  4. rapid downslope flow of water and soil (mostly clay)
  5. within continuous frozen layer

5 True/False Questions

  1. continental glacier"mountain glacier" - confined to a narrow and thin topography in valley. Piedmont and tidewater. river of ice confined in valley, transports debris downstream, originates in cirque and terminates in a body of water


  2. chemical weathering - solutionmineral dissolves- water and carbonic acids. forms no new weathering products, groundwater dissolves bedrock ions in solution added to water and becomes dissolved load. limestone caves - crystallization of calcite, stalctite and stalagmite formation - dissolution of calcium carbonate is erversible process


  3. 3 types of loadsphysical, chemical and biological processes


  4. Erosion in Bedrock channels?Chemical weathering, abrasion, hydraulic action


  5. kameamount of sediment transported at a given discharge
