The sediment produced by a glacier is called
This glacial landform is produced when blocks of dead ice are buried in the outwash plain:
This feature forms when a glacially-eroded valley is flooded by the ocean
Karst topography occurs in landscapes underlain by:
This karst feature hangs from the roof of a cave
Which of these processes are NOT likely to wear down the Earth's land surfaces, lowering its elevation?
We expect this type of weathering to dominate in an arid climate
Which of the following factors plays a role in soil formation?
climate, rock type, biota
Which of the following is the MOST abundant component of an "average" soil?
Soil forms at an average rate of about:
1 foot per 1000 years
Which of the following factors are used to classify mass wasting events?
rate of movement, type of movement, type of material in motion
Mass wasting involves the movement of sediment by:
Flow involves earthen material churning and mixing in a fluid manner as it moves down a slope.
Arid climates are much less likely to experience a mass wasting event.
Which of the following types of mass wasting involve slip?
An aquifer has the following properties:
high porosity, high permeability
Water enters a confined aquifer here:
The elevation where a stream or river ceases to exists is called its:
the term geologists use to describe the volume and rate of the water flowing in a stream channel is:
Which of the following events would cause a stream to fall out of equilibrium?
change in discharge, base level, change in sedimentary deposit
Niagara Falls formed because this happened:
change in base level
This energy contained in raindrops helps streams and rivers carry sediment:
The recurrence interval for a stream or river is determined using the data collected from:
A river with a meandering channel pattern uses less energy than a river with a straight channel pattern.
This type of stream only has water in it during rain events
These channels are very rare because they are forced into their shape by the surrounding bedrock:
This channel forms when a stream or river is overwhelmed by sediment:
This type of channel is the most common:
following features is associated with a meandering river?
point bars, meander scars, Oxbow lakes
Glaciers can carry boulders thousands of miles.
Glaciers advance when:
More snow falls in the winter than melts in the summer
The end of a glacier is known as the:
How much of the Earth's land surface is covered by glacially-derived sediments?
