5 True/False questions
alluvial fan → is a fan shaped deposit of sediment at the base of a mountain. It forms where is a stream leaves a steep valley and enters a flatter plain.
desert pavement → wind blows away all the smallest particles from a mixture sand, silt and gravel, leaves behind a stony surface.
sliding glacier movement → ice near surface is brittle and cracks often form in it. Deep inside, ice doesn't break due to pressure on top.
flowing 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.
slump → is a slide of loose debris that moves as a single unit
