5 True/False questions
lateral moraine → the till that marks the farthest advance of a glacier forms a deposit.
kettle lake → the sediment left directly on the ground surface by a retreating glacier.
mudflow → a major type of mass wasting
flood plain → is an area of land on either side of a stream that is underwater when the stream floods
sliding glacier movement → the weight of a glacier and heat from Earth cause ice at the bottom of a glacier to melt. A layer of water forms under the glacier, and it starts sliding along on the layer of water.
