Has erosion created large numbers of valleys on the surface of the moon?
have erosion created large numbers of valleys on the surface of the moon?
Yes and no a meter hit it and after shocks happened
What is the process that causes rocks on the earths surface to change crumbling mountains and widening valleys?
It certainly did; glacial erosion is very characteristic and geologists can often tell at a glance whether a landscape has been glaciated. In the UK the ice reached as far south as the Thames/Severn rivers and there is a marked difference in the landscapes between northern and southern England. In the south, river valleys are V shaped - created by the erosion of rivers, in the north valleys are usually U shaped; glaciers have eroded…
Valleys are caused by the erosion of rivers and/or glaciers; and they serve to provide a conduit for rain water, snow and ice. Over geological time, rivers have a vast effect of geomorphology (the shape of the earth's surface). The Grand Canyon is an example of the effect of a river carving down through a plateau.
The glaciers and the erosion. It is glaciers and erosion because as glaciers move, they smoothed the rough surfaces, carved deep valleys, and piled up rocks and dirt. In some places, glaciers left behind rich oil. Erosion is the process by which water and wind wear away land. Flowing water can even carve a path through stones over a long period. Overtime, the soil carried by rivers can fill valleys and create plains. Wind causes…
