Teacher: Mrs. Morey
Occurs when a mass of rock or sediment moves downhill along a curved path
Occurs when gravity alone causes rock or sediment to move down a slope
Process that breaks rocks down into smaller pieces without changing them chemically
Configuration of surface features, including position and slope; also influences the types of soils that develop
A form of erosion that occurs when wind blows sediment into rocks, makes pits in the rocks, and produces smooth, polished surfaces
Water that flows over Earth's surface
Natural mechanical or chemical process that causes rocks to change by breaking them down and causing them to crumble
Erosion of land that occurs when wind blows across loose sediments and carries them away, often leaving behind particles too heavy to move
Process in which the chemical composition of rocks is changed by agents such as natural acids and oxygen
Mixture of weathered rock, organic matter, water, and air that evolves over time and supports the growth of plants
Process in which sediments move slowly downhill
Wearing away and removal of rock material that occurs by agents such as gravity, ice, wind, and water
