Transcript of High Plains

A Ecoregion Of Texas

High Plains Characteristics of the land; Weathering Erosion/ Gravity Deposition The High Plains have high elevation.

High Plains have short grass, which was
caused by the decrease in rainfall.

They get up to 10-20 inches of rainfall each year or so.

High Plains is a Semi-Arid climate.

Their climate is generally dry, and areas without
vegetation, experience wind erosion. Okay, so High Plains have gravity, every place on Earth
has gravity. DUH! Well.... I think. (: The High Plains deposits minerals such as
salt, potash, and gypsum. The High Plains have an outstanding oil and
gas region of the whole Texas state. . Extra Info About The High Plains.... Located in Northern/Western Texas, near the
Panhandle. High Plains is the home to many cities. Such as
Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock, and San Angelo. The winter is the
driest time of the whole
four seasons. Weird, right? The High Plains are underlain by a thick agglomeration of a Permian deposit. The most important role in erosion is gravity. Erosion is
the process of weathered rock being moved from one place to another. Here's an easy way to remember what deposition means:
Deposit; Drop something off in a new place.
Money in your purse, you deposit it (drop it) off at the
bank. Example;
The Grand Canyon .
More Information; The High Plains is one of the windiest regions
in the United States.

Weathering is the breaking down of rocks
as well as soil.
