1

Exogenic Processes

Very destructive, they are responsible fordegradation and sculpting the earth’s surface

New cards
2

Weathering

(Which Exogenic Process?) The process that breaks down rocks into smaller pieces.

New cards
3

False. They are Physical and Chemical Weathering.

(True/False) There is only one kind of weathering which is Physical Weathering

New cards
4

Physical Weathering

Rocks are physically broken into smaller pieces.

New cards
5

Physical

(Physical/Chemical Weathering) Release of Pressure

New cards
6

Physical

(Physical/Chemical Weathering) Growth of Plants

New cards
7

Chemical Weathering

The process of breaking down rocks through chemical changes.

New cards
8

Chemical Weathering

(Physical/Chemical Weathering) Water

New cards
9

Chemical Weathering

(Physical/Chemical Weathering) Oxygen

New cards
10

Chemical Weathering

(Physical/Chemical Weathering) CO2

New cards
11

Erosion

(Which Exogenic Process?) Rocks particles get carried away by wind,water, ice and gravity

New cards
12

EROSION BY WATER

(Which agent of Erosion?) It changes the shape of coastlines. It constantly crashes against shores. It pounds rocks into pebbles and reduce pebbles to sand.

New cards
13

EROSION BY WIND

(Which agent of Erosion?) Erosion by ____ carries dust, sand, and volcanic ash from one place to another. ___ can sometimes blow sand into towering dunes

New cards
14

EROSION BY ICE

(Which agent of Erosion?) As glaciers move, they pick up everything in their path, from tiny grains of sand to huge boulders.

New cards
15

EROSION BY GRAVITY

(Which agent of Erosion?) ___ pulls any loose bits down the side of a hill or mountain. This erosion is better known as Mass Movement.

New cards
16

Weathering is the breaking down of rocks. Erosion is the transportation of those broken down rocks or sediments.

What's the difference of Weathering and Erosion?

New cards
17

Sedimentation

(Which Exogenic Process?) The natural process in which a material is carried to the bottom of bodies of water and forms to solid.

New cards
18

Mass Wasting

(Which Exogenic Process?) This refers to the downslope movement of rock and soil under the influence of gravity

New cards
19

Fall

(Classifications Of Mass Wasting) Rock fall

New cards
20

Slides

(Classifications Of Mass Wasting) • Landslide • Slump

New cards
21

Flow

(Classifications Of Mass Wasting) • Mudflow (Lahar) • Earthflow • Solifluction • Creep

New cards
22

Fall

(Classifications Of Mass Wasting) It is the free-fall movement of detached individual pieces of rock.

New cards
23

Slides

(Classifications Of Mass Wasting) They occur whenever rock materials remain fairly coherent and move along a well-defined surface.

New cards
24

Flow

(Classifications Of Mass Wasting) This happens when rock materials are saturated with water and move downslope as a viscous fluid

New cards
25

True!

(True/False) A landslide is an example of 'Slides' Mass Wasting and is the movement of rock, debris or earth down a slope.

New cards
26

Slump (a kind of 'Slides' Mass Wasting)

A _____ is a form of mass wasting that occurs when a coherent mass of loosely consolidated materials or rock layers moves a short distance down a slope. Movement is characterized by sliding along a concave- upward or planar surface.

New cards
27

Endogenic Forces

These are the internal forces that exist deep inside the Earth. They are called the "constructive forces"

New cards
28

Inside

Exogenic: Outside :: Endogenic:

New cards
29

Continent

A ____ is a large continuous mass of land conventionally regarded as a collective region.

New cards
30

Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia

Enumerate the 7 Continents

New cards
31

False

(True/False) 'Pangaia' means “all the Seas”

New cards
32

Pangaea

Over millions of years, the continents of this enormous continent, gradually drifted apart and spread out to form the continents we know today.

New cards
33

Alfred Wegener

The Father of Continental Drift

New cards
34

CONTINENTAL DRIFT THEORY!

This theory suggests that, during the course of the planet's history, the continents have both moved toward and away from one another.
