What are the results from a stream leaving a mountain range and flowing into a lowland?

the rate of flow slows down. the amount of sediment has increased. the amount of sediment has severely decreased. large amounts of sand and gravel are deposited at the foot of the mountain.

What is formed by the deposition of large amounts of sediment into a body of water by a river?

The outside of the curve is eroded & deposition of soil forms on the inside of the curve. This is the process of how the stream moves (or meanders) from its original path. What is formed by the deposition of sediment where the river slows down as it enters a large body of water such as a lake or ocean? DELTA.

What is the depositing or placing of eroded material?

sedimentation

What is responsible for transporting the majority of sediment on Earth?

Glaciers are the most responsible for transporting the most sediment.

What type of weathering is oxidation?

Oxidation is the reaction of rock minerals with oxygen, thus changing the mineral composition of the rock. When minerals in rock oxidize, they become less resistant to weathering. Iron, a commonly known mineral, becomes red or rust colored when oxidized.

What are the agents of biological weathering?

the agents of biological weathering are : → humans , plants , wind , water , air , stars , animals ..

How does biological weathering occur answer in brief?

Weathering can occur due to exposure to the earth’s atmosphere. The growth of plants, the penetration of their roots, diffusion of rotten plant and animal cells, burrowing of animals, the spread of algae, moss, lichen and many other human interferences are the major causes of biological weathering.

How does biological weathering affect the landscape?

Biological weathering Plants and animals can have an effect on rocks. Roots burrow into the rock, weakening the structure of the rock until it breaks away. Plant roots can get into small cracks in the rock. This causes small pieces of rock to break away.
