Field assignment part 2

  1. 1. By: TrentSoutherland
  2. 2. This is a picture of PineMountain from the top ofthe largest Etowah IndianMound. The CartersvilleFault is a thrust fault thatruns along HWY 41 andthrough Pine Mountain.
  3. 3. I believe the shaping of this rock is due to oxidation, a type of chemical weathering.
  4. 4. I found this rock near the Etowah River. It looks like this type of mechanical weathering is frost wedging.
  5. 5. Mass wasting has occurred alongthis cliff. Debris has settled at thebottom due to oversteepening ofthe slope. I believe theoversteepening is caused by winderosion.
  6. 6. Erosion This is an example of some bed load slowly being transferred down the Etowah River.
  7. 7. This is the Etowah River. Rivers and streams erode and transfer more sediment than any other process. The Etowah Indians shallowed out this part of the river to aid in capturing fish.
  8. 8. To the left is a picture of a beach on TybeeIsland, GA, a transition zone between marine and continental environments.
  9. 9. Above, is a view of the Pacific Ocean from Santa Monica Pier, a marine sedimentary environment. Marine sedimentaryenvironments come in shallow (depths to 200 meters) and deep (depths greater than 200 meters) categories.
  10. 10. Stone Mountain is a world class granite masswith a bas-relief of Stonewall Jackson, RobertE. Lee, and Jefferson Davis on its north face. Stone Mountain Park provides numerous activities , such as spectacular laser shows throughout the year.
