What is the unsorted rocky debris left behind by a melting glacier
The term "till" is the name given to unsorted rocky debris
formed by melting glaciers.
What percentage of the earth's water is fresh
What is the process in which electricity is passed through salt water for the purpose of desalinating the water
The process in which electricity is passed through salt water
for the purpose of desalinating the water is electrodialysis. This
process accelerates diffusion.
How have scientists been able to determine the composition of earths layers
Scientists have been able to determine the composition of
earth's layers using various ways. In most cases, samples have been
taken and studied so as to determine the layers of the earth.
What percentage of Earth's surface water is in the form of glacial ice
What portion of the mantle is hot enough to begin melting rocks into magma
What occurs when a continental plate collides with an oceanic plate and overtakes it
When a continental plate collides with an oceanic plate and
overtakes it, this is known as subduction.
Which type of wetland has woody plants and tall trees
What percentage of the earth's surface is covered by ocean water
What is the solid outer crust layer and the top portion of the mantle layer called
Which type of wetland is prone to flooding and has a neutral pH level
What percentage of Earth's surface water is ground water
What percentage of Earth's water is located in oceans
96% of Earth's water is in the oceans.
Which of these is a form of moving surface water
Which process works by applying pressurized water against a semi-permeable membrane that traps salts and other minerals
Which formation is made of material that is frozen to the bottom of the glacier and carried along acting as abrasive elements
When rain water has soaked the ground to the point it can hold no more water the ground is considered to be fully
Which type of wetland has highly acidic water and large quantities of peat and moss
What long narrow glaciers form between mountains and are common in the Alps and the Andes
What type of rocks form when melted rock cools from inside the Earth
Igneous rock forms when melted rock (magma) from inside the
Which formation is a long winding ridge made from deposits of sand and gravel
Coral reefs form in which portion of the Continental margin
The water cycle includes which of the following processes
What is it called Water that has low saline content
What do the Trees and other plants give off water vapor through the process of
Trees and other plants give off water vapor through their aerial
parts (stomata) during a process called transpiration.
What Water vapor droplets form clouds and Earth's gravity pulls the moisture to the surface in the form of .
When a glacier leaves behind a rock that is of completely different material composition than the formation it is deposited upon it is called
The rock is called a glacial erratic when it is left behind by a
glacier, and is of a completely different material composition than
the rocks on which it was deposited.
