Grade 4 Geomorphology
             Deposition             is when particles carried by water, wind or ice are deposited in another location.

The movement of sediment or soil from one location to another is           erosion          .

The breaking down of rocks and minerals by physical, chemical or biological processes is              weathering             .

Deltas forming at the mouths of rivers              deposition             .

A mudslide flowing down a steep hill           erosion          .

Needs to take place before erosion              weathering             .

Wind blowing sand from one location to another           erosion          .

Can be mechanical or chemical              weathering             .

Waves dropping sand on the beach              deposition             .

Occurs when gravity's downward pull on sediment is stronger           erosion          .

Results in wind or water forming beaches, barrier islands, and sand bars              deposition             .

Human activities such as construction increase this process           erosion          .

No movement of sediment is involved              weathering             .

The movement of weathered materials           erosion          .

Layers of sediment forming at the bottom of the ocean              deposition             .

Glaciers dropping rock and sand to form terminal moraines              deposition             .

Rocks being made smooth by tumbling across a stream-bed              weathering             .

Wind blasting sand at rock and carving out arches              weathering             .

Rain washing away soil from a hillside           erosion          .
