Mass movement processes and landforms

Mass movement is the downslope movement of the rock debris in response to gravity without the direct aid of other media such as air, water, ice, and ground shaking (still these factors contribute to the process of mass movement). Downslope movement occurs when the gravitational driving force exceeds the frictional resistance of the material resting …

Depositional Landforms

A stream erodes a large amount of sediments and debris of the rocks and earth surface. The separation of sediments from the surface is called Weathering. The movement of these sediments from their origin to low lying areas is called erosion. Both the processes of weathering and erosion are collectively called Denudation. As a result …
