Geomorphic Processes

  1. 1. What do the following photos have in common?
  2. 2. They all show geomorphic processes <ul><li>These processes act continually upon the landscape. </li></ul><ul><li>They slowly change the shape and appearance of the landscape. </li></ul><ul><li>The three processes are weathering, erosion and mass movement. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Which photo shows which process? Weathering
  4. 4. Which photo shows which process? Erosion
  5. 5. Which photo shows which process? Mass movement
  6. 6. Weathering <ul><li>It is the breakdown of rock in the place they were found by the action of weather chemicals, plants and animals. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Erosion <ul><li>Rivers, waves, ice and wind erode rocks and transport the fragments away. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Mass Movement <ul><li>When rocks, loosened by weathering move downhill under the influence of gravity. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Different types of weathering activity. <ul><li>Organise yourself into pairs (A and B) </li></ul><ul><li>Sit back to back </li></ul><ul><li>A’ then describes their diagram which they do not allow their partner to see. ‘B’ has to draw what ‘A’ is describing, aiming to make a perfect replica which is exact in size, shape and detail complete with the labelling. </li></ul><ul><li>‘ B’ may ask as many questions as they like, and it is A’s job to be as helpful as possible. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Which type of weathering is most likely to… <ul><li>Occur in a desert climate </li></ul><ul><li>Happen in Britain more in the winter than the summer </li></ul><ul><li>Happen in Britain more in the summer than winter </li></ul><ul><li>Happen fastest in a tropical rainforest </li></ul><ul><li>Effect statues </li></ul>
