  1. evidence - erratic
  2. glacier deposits
  3. lateral morrain
  4. Suspended load
  5. chemical weathering - hydrolysis
  1. a pile up along the sides of glaciers
  2. b boulder-size rock dumped by glacier in a landscape of different composition
  3. c suspended because of turbulent eddies, very fine (silt, clay) - 90% of sediment load - from slopes, banks and channel bed - depends on discharge and sediment availability
  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 chemical reaction with water produces new compounds is significant in weathering of silicates

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. decay, disintegration, and dissolution of fresh rocks and minerals - no transport. Alters original lithological characteristics. Produces an unconsolidated material consisting of: new minerals, minerals that resisted destruction (stable minerals) and organic minerals added to weathered zone
  2. slow retreat of terminus leaves series of end morrain
  3. straight, meandering, braided
  4. Solution (dissolved) - suspended load - bed load
  5. removal of rocks from outcrop (water along fractures)

5 True/False Questions

  1. how do glaciers form?there is a surplus of snow which is compacted by more snow and rain, re-crystalizes into firn and ice. Gravity moves mass downslope, slowly forming a streamlike pattern


  2. kettleformed when river flows into standing water, rapid deposition of the alluvial sediment. mostly sand and finer material, low angel forms from top, has steep fronts that go into the water body, producing forest bedding


  3. deposition at river mouthsoccur when a river reaches base level, flat surface or standing water. Alluvial fans or Deltas. Due to reduced velocity. Many tributaries appear.


  4. Capacitymax. amount of solid sediment that a river can move at a given discharge


  5. through talikbedload + suspended load + dissolved load
