Topographic Map of El Paso
Of the Franklin Mountains
8.9c Objective Summary
Topographic Maps and Satellite Views can identify land and erosional features, they can also predict how these features may be reshaped by weathering. Weathering and erosion changes the landforms; the change in weathering, erosion can be shown using topographic maps and satellite views. Topographic Maps shows the elevation of what weathering and erosion shaped.
Takes place as rocks break down into smaller pieces, by the effects of the weather. It is caused by water, as it freezes and thaws- as well as chemical reactions, it loosens the bonds holding the rock together.
Erosion is the process of eroding (or) by being eroded by wind, water, or other natural elements.
It is the arrangement of the natural and artificial physical features of an area.
Shows us how earth looks like from space, and gives us a clear picture of different erosional features, like landslides and deltas.
I will be able to interpret topographic maps and satellite views to identify land and erosional features and how these features may be reshaped by weathering.

Topographic Maps shows the three dimensional (3D) features of an area.
Contour Lines are lines that connects points of equal elevation. Spaced-out Contour Lines means that it is a very gradual slope. Contour Lines that are closed together represent a very steep slope.
Elevation is the altitude of a place above sea or ground level. The height to which something is elevated or raised up.
