  • Weathering, Erosion and Deposition 7.8B analyze the effect of weathering, erosion and deposition on the environment in Ecoregions of Texas

  • Once a rock is formed, does it stay in the same place forever?

  • Video!

    • Crash Course on Weathering, Erosion and Deposition

  • Make sure you have this foldable:

  • Key Terms:

    Weathering – chemical and physical break down of rocks into sediment

  • Key Terms (cont’d):

    CHEMICAL WEATHERING

    THE PROCESS THAT BREAKS DOWN ROCKS BY CHEMICAL CHANGES OR REACTIONS.

    This statue has lost finer details in the eyes and lost major details of the nose

  • Footer text here

  • MECHANICAL WEATHERING THE PROCESS THAT BREAKS DOWN ROCKS BY PHYSICAL MEANS (NO CHANGE IN THE CHEMICAL NATURE OF THE ROCKS).

    Grand Canyon is an example of mechanical weathering

  • Frost or Ice wedging: Exfoliation:

  • Biological Weathering

    • Plant roots grow and break apart rock

  • Fill in your chart (mechanical) Type of Mechanical Weathering Explanation

    Ice Wedging Process that splits rock when water seeps into cracks, then freezes and expands

    Exfoliation Extreme high temperatures cause the outside of rocks to crack and flake off

    Root Pry Roots enter cracks in rocks, forcing the cracks further apart

    Actions of Animals Burrowing in the ground breaks rocks apart

    Abrasion Grinding away of rock by other rock particles

  • Fill in your chart (chemical) Type of Chemical

    Weathering Explanation

    Water Water weathers rock by dissolving it

    Oxidation Rocks that contain iron, oxidize (rust) and appear red in color

    Carbonation Carbon dioxide and water mix to form carbonic acid – over time caves form

    Living Organisms Plants produce a weak acid that dissolves rock

    Acid Rain Pollutants react chemically with water vapor to form acid rain

  • Key Terms:

    Weathering – chemical and physical break down of rocks into sediment

    Erosion – the movement of sediment from one place to another

    Deposition – the placement of sediment after being carried from place of origin

  • Erosion

    • First picture - The water weathers the rock and then carries it away from its original location

    • Second picture - Utah Canyonlands are created by the wind carrying away rock particles

  • Deposition Examples:

    1. Deposition of this sediment occurs when the waters slows down and the heavier particles drop, forming a delta

    2. The sand dunes were created when particles carried on wind were dropped in a new location

  • Weathering Erosion and Deposition Lab

    Do you have your lab page?

    This lab will demonstrate different types of weathering, erosion and deposition.

    Follow the instructions both on the lab page and at each station. CLEAN UP IS REQUIRED!

    Questions at the end are required as part of the reflection and understanding of this lab.

  • MAKING OBSERVATIONS

    What tools do you use to make good observations?

    How do you describe observations?

    Use descriptive words, for example: don’t just say “white”, say “white with a powdery surface that easily comes off on my hand”.

  • Lab Expectations

    Let’s read the top of the page.

    You will be on a time limit for each station.

  • Lab Expectations

    Station Instructions – notice CLEAN UP portion of the station??

  • Lab Stations 1-3

    Stations need to look like this BEFORE your time is up at this station.

    DO NOT be the group that holds everyone else up!

    You MAY NOT leave your station to rotate to the next one if your current station is not clean!

  • Lab Stations 4-6

  • Work in your table groups

    • Start at the station you are assigned. When the timer goes off, move to the next station in numerical order.
