Regents Review #9: Weathering, Erosion, Deposition, & Landscapes
1. To weather something means to _____________________________________________
2. To erode something means to ______________________________________________
3. To deposit something means _______________________________________________
4. Frost action works best in a wet/dry and warm/cold/variable climate.
5. Chemical weathering works best in a wet/dry and warm/cold/variable climate.
6. Acid rain is caused by ____________________________________
7. According to the diagram below, the shale is the most/least resistant to erosion. (Hint:
don’t know which one is the shale? Use R.T. page 7)
8. If you dump mixed sediments into water, the largest/smallest, most/least dense, and
roundest/flattest particles will go to the bottom.
9. A particle will settle slowly if it is round/flat, has high/low density, and large/small.
10. Streams make _____ – shaped valleys, glaciers make _____ – shaped valleys.
11. Vegetation helps to hold soil in place/erode it.
12. The diagram below shows a ___________, which forms as a stream ________________
13. Running water:
Makes round/angular and smooth/rough particles and leaves sorted/unsorted deposits.
14. Glaciers:
Make round/angular and smooth/rough particles and leave sorted/unsorted deposits.
15. Kettle lakes form as ________________________________________________
16. A moraine is ______________________________________________________
17. Striations are _____________________________________________________
18. Label the following pictures as a moraine, drumlin, striations, or erratic. One choice will
be used twice.
19. The faster a stream flows, the larger/smaller the particle it can carry.
20. A stream moving at 60cm/sec can/cannot carry cobbles.
21. Sand particles are between _________ and _________ cm in diameter.
22. A stream will go faster if the slope increases/decreases, and if the discharge
23. The stream will flow fastest on the inside/outside of the meander.
24. This stream will flow fastest at letters (choose 2) B, C, D, E
25. This stream will flow slowest at letters (choose 2) B, C, D, E
26. Erosion is greatest at letters (choose 2) B, C, D, E
27. Deposition is greatest at letters (choose 2) B, C, D, E
28. At the mouth of the river, large/small/both sediments would be found. As the distance
from the mouth of the river increases, the size of the particles increases/decreases.
29. A stream that meanders flows straight/curves, is older/younger, and flows faster/slower.
30. If equal amounts of erosion and deposition happen, we have ______________________
31. Elmira NY is in the _________________________________________ landscape region.
32. Rounded landscapes form in humid/dry areas, angular ones form in humid/dry areas.
33. Mountains and plateaus both have high/low elevations, but mountains are often folded,
creating distorted/layered rocks, and plateaus are usually sedimentary rock so they have
distorted/layered rock.
34. Match the picture to the drainage pattern
