Deposition group project
Transcript of Deposition group project
What is one benefit of having a barrier island?
What is one main difference between deposition, erosion, and weathering?
What are three landforms that are created by deposition?
What are three landforms or forces that cause deposition?
What is the average diameter of a grain of sand?
What is the name of a famous delta and where is it found? (Two part question means two pieces of candy!!!)
What is deposition and where is one place that it occurs?
What is a delta and where are they typically found?
What makes grains of sand so small?
What are two things that make up beach sand?
Why are some beaches in Hawaii green?
What are destructive forces? A barrier island is a sand deposit that lies parallel to shore, but is not considered part of the mainland. Rock fragments
Grains of quartz
Coral and shell fragments-white(Jamaica) Beaches are made of different materials because the ocean waves pick up different materials and push them to shore. The benefits of having barrier island are that you are protected from hurricanes, tsunamis, etc. because the island breaks down and stops the storm before it can get to you. They can also stop most large waves. Beaches, islands, river beds, deltas, sand bars, barrier islands, and alluvial fans are examples of landforms created by deposition. Deltas are found at the mouth of rivers, where they empty into a larger body of water. The Mississippi River Delta is at the mouth of the river, in the Gulf of Mexico. Waves! They bump sand grains together to make them about 0.06 mm-2 mm in diameter. This bumping not only makes the sand into smaller pieces, but also makes them rounder. A delta is a triangular tract of sediment deposited at the mouth of the river. A famous delta is the one at the mouth of the Mississippi river. Beaches are deposits of sediment parallel to the shore.
