yes!! severe is really bad if tht is what u mean by the question it is sorta confusing
Both erosion and deposition.
i haveno idea pls help me
Agents responsible for the deposition of sediments include water (rivers, lakes, oceans), wind, and ice (glaciers). These agents transport and deposit sediment particles, such as sand, silt, and clay, through processes like erosion, transportation, and settling. The specific agent involved depends on the environment and geological context.
A sandstone arch is formed in a desert area through a combination of erosion and weathering processes. Over time, wind, water, and extreme temperature changes gradually wear away the softer layers of sandstone, leaving behind an arch-shaped structure. As the erosion continues, the arch may eventually collapse, leaving only remnants.
Chemical weathering is a bigger problem today due to human activities that have increased the release of pollutants into the atmosphere. Industrial processes, such as burning fossil fuels, have released higher levels of pollutants like sulfur and nitrogen oxides, which when combined with water in the atmosphere forms acid rain. Acid rain accelerates chemical weathering, leading to the degradation of rocks, buildings, and monuments at a faster rate than 100 years ago.
The arch cave stack stump and weathering are similar because both involve the gradual breakdown and erosion of rocks and landforms. In the case of the arch cave stack stump, it is formed through a process of weathering where the waves and weather erode the base of an arch until it collapses, leaving a stack or stump behind. Weathering, on the other hand, refers to the natural processes that break down rocks and landforms over time, including physical, chemical, and biological processes. Both result in the alteration and modification of the original landscape.
The feature of sea erosion at the Old Head of Kinsale is the dramatic cliffs that have been carved out by the relentless force of the ocean waves over time. These cliffs provide a stunning view and are a result of the ongoing erosion processes along the coastline.
Yosemite Valley is a California geologic feature that formed as a result of erosion by glaciers. The glaciers carved out the U-shaped valley, leaving behind steep granite walls and beautiful waterfalls. Other examples include the glacially-carved cirques and hanging valleys in the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Antelope Canyon was formed millions of years ago through erosion caused by flash flooding, wind, and the natural wear and tear of the sandstone walls. The specific timing of its formation is difficult to determine, but it is believed to have taken shape gradually over a long period of time.
A single block of 500 kg granite weathers more slowly than 100 chunks of 5 kg each due to the smaller surface area-to-volume ratio of the single block. The surface area is where weathering processes predominantly occur, so a larger surface area increases the exposure to weathering agents like water and air. The smaller chunks have more surface area relative to their volume, leading to increased weathering compared to the larger block.
The slope or gradient of the stream is the most likely factor to affect the amount of erosion. Steeper slopes result in higher velocities, which in turn increase the erosive power of the stream. A steeper slope also allows the stream to carry larger sediment and potentially cause more erosion.
Erosion can cause serious harm to ecosystems and human property. The guiding principle of preventing erosion is to avoid altering natural landscapes and processes as much as possible. Where urban areas are expanding in response to population increase, clearly some impact on natural areas is inevitable. But the damage can be minimized by planning around the natural features of the land.
One way to help prevent water erosion is to plant plants.The plant's roots will help hold the soil together, the smaller the are the better the dirt is held together.
More the plant cover , less chances will be their for soilerosion. Because plant roots held the soil tight.
the roots keep the soil from moving around and keeps them "anchored down".
they could dig up holes
No it's better to plant grass around the plant or place rocks around it.
There has been some total clearing of the rainforest.
There has been some logging.
There are roads put in that:
help weeds to invade,
open up the canopy increasing light that changes what can live there,
open up the canopy causing water loss that changes what can live there,
cause a lot of erosion that damages the fringing reef.
Spread a lot of pollutants
Fed themselves to the crocodiles / got angry and killed the crocodiles
Caused rapid climate change which threatens immediately greater storm damage and then . . . who knows?
Soil erosion can cause desertification, which results in loss of plant life in a certain area. This forces animals to move elsewhere to find food, abandoning an area that was once rich in plant life.
Water erosion happens when moving water picks up sediments and wears away (or erodes) the bank of the water. It happens because water naturally wears away sediment
to be honest in mechanical weathering plants grow their roots in the cracks of rocks. In chemical weathering plants grow their roots in the cracks of rocks, and the roots release acid that weathers away the rock.
Yes, especially plants with fibrous root systems such as grasses. The roots provide resistance to the flow of water and the stems and leaves provide resistance to wind. Soil particles become trapped in the various plant parts instead of moving away with the erosive force.
