Is there sediment Close to the mid-ocean?
Older, as it moves away from the mid-ocean ridge the sediment gets thicker and older
Midocean ridges are areas where continents broke apart. Midocean ridges are closest to the landmasses in younger oceans. One example where a midocean ridge intersected a landmass is the Arabian sea, which was formed by the pulling apart of the Arabian Peninsula and Africa.
Midocean Ridge - Underwater Mountains! A mountain chain on the ocean floor that forms where tectonic plates pull apart.
Rising molten basaltic rock from the top of the mantle fills the crack at the midocean ridge and solidifies, preventing it from closing again.
During a flood a river drops the largest pieces of its sediment on the floodplain close to its normal channel but why?
When a stream floods, it deposits much of the sediment that it carries onto its floodplain
Ganges, though there are others close, such as the Amazon.
GPS = global positioning device
At transform faults or transform zones.
At the highest parts of the midocean ridge.
where it always has been, at the midocean ridges.
At midocean ridges. At underocianic slip faults.
midocean ridges alternating bands of different magnetic fields appearing nearly symmetrically on opposite sides of midocean ridges deep sea trenches etc.
It might get more narrow, I mean since they are rocks it will close the path more
Was ist ein Sediment = what is a sediment
Sediment is deposited when the energy in the flow is not enough to move the sediment.
The Navy found them by accident while doing sonar surveys (worrying about Russian subs).
because horbor seals are a familiar sight along the new england coast.
What is an example for sediment
A saturated sediment is a saturated sediment dah It's easy
Sediment accumulation is where sediment accumulates generally in the point of the lowest elevation. If sediment is in a river generally the sediment will accumulate at the mouth of the delta when entering the marine environment (proximal to distal).
A delta will be formed close to land, and an abyssal plain far from land. The abyssal plain is the true floor of the ocean, beyond the Continental Slope & Rise, not a river form, although it does collect some sediment from rivers.
water, wind, ice, etc. do transport sediment. lava does not transport sediment
A convection current causes magma to rise at the midocean ridge and pushes the plates apart.
Water and sediment.
Sediments is the plural of sediment
Sediment is a noun.
. An inorganic sediment is something that is not organic.
The sediment transport by the rock cycle
Sediment consist of backflown materials
Fossils and sediment
Beause the winery didn't do a good job of straining out the particles of grapes. Probably was that bottle was filled when the barrel was getting close to empty.
sediment causes H2O to discolor. also sediment causes some submerged vegetation to die. so to top it off sediment can kill plant life.
One of the midocean ridges is, but others are in other oceans, seas, and bays.
Yes. Glaciers carry large amounts of sediment. When that sediment is deposited it is called glacial till.
Silt refers to a sediment of a certain size. Sediment can be of any size particle which has been deposited.
This sediment is a precipitate, an insoluble matter in the solvent.
What is the name for wind blown sediment
No, it is fined and filtered so throws no sediment.
A boulder is the largest piece of sediment.
yes a sediment is a form of carbon
Sediment, hence the "sediment"ary
When sediment is laid down, this is known as deposition. The sediment is unconsolidated and so it is not (yet) a rock.
No, the red sea sea is a spreading center. One of the midocean ridges runs up its center.

The sediment carried by the river is filling up the delta.
No. It is a type of Hydrogenous sediment.
