Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition

Author: Kari Salomon
Description:

Compare Earth's internal processes with Earth's external processes.

Explain the effects of physical processes of erosion and deposition on geological features of Earth. 

A series of 4 introductory videos that guide student understanding of erosion and deposition:

1- Introduction to Erosion and Deposition and the Water cycle

2- Introduction to the FLOW of water- the GREATEST agent of erosion

3- Introduction to Glaciers- The Massive Earth Carvers

4- Introduction to Erosion and Deposition in Deserts and Coastlines

5- Introduction to Ground water!

Tutorial

Introduction to Erosion and Deposition

This video series helps to introduce external factors responsible for shaping the earth.  The cover photo is of Mt. St. Helens, over 30 years after the 1980 eruption.  Within the first video is a photograph of Mt. St. Helens before the devastating eruption. 

The first video is 15 minutes of compare/contrast between Internal and External processes, the changes that happen on and in Earth, and how the Water Cycle plays a major role in shaping Earth's surface.

The second video explores the effect of running water on Earth's Surface.

The third video introduces glacier as agents of erosion that carves the sides out of mountains to form U-shaped valleys.

The fourth video explores erosion and deposition by wind and water in deserts and along coasts.

The last video introduces student to the effect of ground water on erosion and deposition.

Introduction to the FLOW of water- the GREATEST agent of erosion

The second video explores the effect of running water on Earth's Surface as well as features formed from water erosion. Features formed by deposition from water are also discussed. This video supports chapter 11 in the Earth Science Textbook.
