All mass movement occurs on slopes. Without gravity, the material would remain in place and not move. True or false.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

True

Explanation:

The mass movements are representing movements of large masses of soil, also including rocks, water, biomass in them. These movements though need certain natural conditions so that they can happen. For a mass movement to occur, there has to be a slope, and under the influence of the gravitation, once the conditions are right, there will be movement downward until it reaches a flatter spot. If the terrain is flat, then a mass movement can not occur, as the gravitation is pulling the material down, so it will not be able to move. Also, if the gravitation is lacking, the material will not move anywhere, as without gravitation, there will be no atmosphere, and without atmosphere, there will be no agents to cause the mass movement.

Answer 2
Answer:

Answer:

True

Explanation:

  • All the mass wasting process is associated with the principle of the gravitational controls and this principle is essential for understanding the process of the formation of the weathering and the soil erosion process and flowage of the material down the slopes of the hills or the mountain etc.
  • As the steeper slopes are more likely to have the mass wasting and as compared to the gentle and more flat slopes. The rock falls, and the slumps and the debris flows are all examples of mass wasting. Thus all the falls, slides, creeps and flows occur due to the gravity of the earth and fluidity of the materials.

According to Snelgrove, if you were to suck all of the water out of the ocean, what would you be left with?

Answers

Answer:

Biomass on the seafloor, and greater quantities near the poles

Explanation:

Snelgrove says this phrase to explain and debunk a common myth in education, that there needs to be oxygen for animals to live. Snelgrove focuses on the sea creatures that live deep down like the blobfish, he says these organisms were able to adapt to places with no oxygen.

He then explains that if all the water was sucked out of the ocean we will be left with biomass on the seafloor and in special high quantities in the poles, where the conditions are seemingly not ideal for organisms, but in the deep sea, this is where there are more living organisms and biomass. This phenomenon is explained by the adaptations of the organisms to their surroundings, and mainly due to the nutrients present on the seafloor which are the starting point of the food chain in the seas..

Describe four expected impacts of global warming.

Answers

Many impacts can be  brought by global warming, here I would introduce two impact each on the aspect on ecosystem and agriculture.

On ecosystem:

1. Shift in distribution of plants:

The changes in climate brought by global warming will alter the natural distribution limits for vegetation. For example, forests are moving north into the ;and that was once Arctic tundra, while the growing season increased in northern high latitudes.

2. Extinction or endangerment of species

Species may not be able to cope with climate change unlike human, hence intolerance of the increasing temperature may led to the extinction of spices. For example, coral reef cannot survive under temperature over 30 degree Celsius hence facing the danger of extinction.

On agriculture:

3.Farm production lowered

A warmer climate would lead to a loss of soil moisture hence increasing the erosion rate, and the dry soil will lower the land productivity as crops cannot grow on these barren land, especially water thirsty crops such as rice.

4.Farm production destroyed

Pests may become more active given the shorter and warmer winter, while floods may be present more often given the rapidly rising sea level and the instability of the climate.

Striations of rocks found at high altitudes are most likely caused by _____. deposition
abrasion
moraines
compression

Answers

Answer:

moraines

Explanation:

  • A striangulation means a grove that is created by a moving object such as a place on the surface of the rocks and this is either due to the fault moment and mostly occurs in areas of the glacial action.
  • They can also occur n their habitats like that of the feldspar, quartz and the chalcocite. The velocity and thickness of the ice, relative erosion and the thermal condition of the glaciers also impact their formation.
  • Moraines are formed by the deposition of the material that is on the face of the glacier and are left after the glacier has retreated.
I think the anwser is deposition
