Surface Features of Earth :

Surface Features of Earth Mrs. Southern GPS: S5E1a,b.

Surface Features:

Surface Features Some surface features are caused by constructive processes and some are caused by destructive processes.

What surface features are caused by constructive processes?:

What surface features are caused by constructive processes? Deposition (Deltas, sand dunes, etc.) Earthquakes Volcanoes Faults

What surface features are caused by destructive processes?:

What surface features are caused by destructive processes? Erosion (water—rivers and oceans, wind) Weathering Earthquake Volcano

Depositions:

Depositions Sand dunes are hills or ridges of sand piled up by wind Deltas are created when river water picks up sediment and deposits it at the mouth of the river or stream.

Earthquakes:

Earthquakes Earthquakes happen when two pieces of earth, called tectonic plates, slide past one another.

Volcanoes:

Volcanoes Volcanoes are openings in the Earth’s surface that lead to a pool of molten rock. When pressure builds up underneath the Earth’s surface magma escapes through this opening.

Faults:

Faults Faults are cracks in the Earth. These cracks slide against each other and can cause earthquakes.

Erosion :

Erosion Erosion happens when water or wind picks up sediment from a specific location and moves it away from that location.

Weathering:

Weathering Weathering occurs when water or chemicals causes the break down of rock. This is different from erosion because the pieces dissolve rather than move to a different location.
