Hi! Today we are going to be talking about water erosion and mass movement!
First, did you know mass movement is any one of several processes by which gravity moves sediment downhill . Some examples are mudflow, landslide, slump, and creep.
What's water erosion then?
Then, erosion is the process by which natural forces move weathered rock and soil from one place to another. Erosion deposits small, solid pieces of material that come from rocks or the remains of organisms which is know as, sediment.
Well, I guess you could read my mind, I was just going to talk about that. Water erosion has several different parts to it! Naming a few examples are runoff, tributary, stream, alluvial fan, and oxbow lake.
I remember what an alluvial fan is and a stream but I don't recall what runoff, tributary, and oxbow lake are?
Runoff is water that moves over Earth's surface rather then soaking into the ground. a tributary is a stream or river that flows into a larger river. Finally, an oxbow lake is a meander cut off from a river.
Thanks for teaching me about water erosion and mass movement!
Then, so they went to their 1st period class, science, with all the knowledge in the world!
