Transcript of Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition and The Impact of Humans on The Surface of The Earth

Deposition Erosion Weathering Weathering is the breaking down of rocks into sediment
Physical Weathering is a non chemical process of breaking down rocks. Example: Plant Expansion.
Chemical Weathering changes what rocks are made of. Example: Acid Rain Deposition is the settling of sediment
Heavy particles settling at the beginning of a stream is an example of deposition. Erosion is the carrying away of sediment.
Wind and water are examples of erosion. By Jonah Estabrook and
Hassan Gudal Weathering, Erosion, Deposition, and How Humans Effect The Surface Of Planet Earth The after effect of deposition Effects of Weathering, Erosion and Deposition on Earth's Surface Examples of weathering, erosion, and deposition include: Smooth mountain sides, canyons, shallow lakes, straight streams, and cracked open rocks. This canyon was formed by weathering and erosion This mountain was made smooth by weathering. How the Locations of Businesses and Homes Are Affected By Weathering and Erosion Humans build on flat land.
Humans don't build on/next to mountains and steep hills.
Farmers like to build near sights of erosion. Farm near sight of erosion. How Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition Can Be Prevented By Humans Humans can build dams.
Humans can plant trees.
Humans can pave over land. Dams like this can prevent weathering, erosion, and deposition. How Humans Cause Negative Effects of Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition on the Surface of the Earth Humans can remove plants.
Humans can build cities.
Humans can build quarries. This is an example of weathering This quarry is a negative effect of weathering and erosion caused by humans Our Sources Ms. Harris' books.
The labs, quizzes, and worksheets that Ms. Harris created.
