Physical Geography Ch. 13
Solution of minerals by acids occurring in soil and ground water
Any stream-laid sediment deposit found in a stream channel and in low parts of a stream valley subject to flooding
Deposit of sediment originating at higher slope and accumulating at the base
Downhill surge of water-saturated soil, regolith, or weak shale
Removal of over-lying rock load from bedrock through denudation
Water freezes, expands, rock breaks
Mass wasting by humans (e.g. waste soil contamination, rock piles, undercutting slopes)
Induced mass wasting
Flow of water and mineral fragments, mass-wasting
Recesses formed in cliffs
Oxygen combines with metallic elements
MIneral particles layer over-lying bedrock
Large quantities of rock falling from cliff
Rock is disintegrated by growing salt crystals during dry weather periods
Land disturbance to get minerals
Degree of inclination from ground surface
Soil and regolith move down slow cuz they be getting wet or dry or stuff like frost action, and temperatures getting whack happen
Dudes looking for gems toss this stuff
Slope formed by rapid accumulation of talus
Rocks get whipped chemically and physically through processes at Earth's surface
Large mass of Earth and rocks down a hill
Blocks of rock fall off slope
Sliding down curved surface
Regolith goes down a slope, smaller than flow
What is the main type of acid involved in acid action?
Forms when carbon dioxide dissolves in water
Carbonate sedimentary rocks are easy targets of what process?
True or false: THe new minerals formed by oxidation and hydrolysis are stronger than the ones before
Salt-crystal growth causes zones of rock to break up and form these in cliffs
Loose rock fragment accumulation when rocks fall off a cliff
