Lack of rainfall, wind erosion and evaporation rate are the processes in which create these desert regions. In glacial regions water is the main cause of erosion, runoff can cause erosion of side of rivers and basins. Glaciers drift and bang against the landscape creating big gouges in rocks and land (scouring). Since the glaciers are constantly moving and melting and freezing this is constantly changing the glacier landscape. Glacial areas were created by water freezing, lack of
However this can degrade the habitat further and even distant sea walls can starve down drift beaches of sediment. With an increased number of houses in the area the population will increase, an increased population results in an increased number of cars and people wanting to use the beach. Humans can trample any vegetation, crushing its roots and causing it to die. Without any vegetation stabilising the sand dune the sand is blown away by wind erosion and to the sand dunes will become smaller and eventually disappear. A result of this is that the shoreline is left more vulnerable to damage and erosion from storm surges.
As seen on figure 7, the Rocky Mountains are high lying, therefore prone to snow and glacial ice, because of climate change; this will heat up and melt, this will then cause a massive avalanche and cause harm to the villages and towns surrounding it and possibly the skiers/snowboarders on the slopes. In a summery season, the Rocky Mountains will have a lot of landslides; because this mountain is ‘rocky’ it will then cause mass destruction of rocks falling down the mountain damaging the villages and towns. The Pacific coastline has a high potential to landslides, this is due to erosion, and the rocks will start to erode way from the sea withering the rock, and then
When the ice core in the pingos melts the top of the dome collapses leaving a rampart surrounding a circular depression called an ognip. Patterened ground is a collective term for a number of minor features which are thought to be the result of frost heave. Stones within the fine material heat up and cool down faster because they have a lower specific heat capacity than the surrounding material. As the temperature falls ice lenses develop under the stones and force them upwards. As the larger stones are moves upwards they push the surface into a dome shape and the large stones eventually force themselves onto the surface.
However, kames consist of gravel and sand deposited by streams that flowed into holes in the glacial ice, depositing sediment in the holes. When the ice later melted, the materials slumped down, often forming conical-shaped hills. Thus, kames are formed "from above," veblens "from below" (diagram "A" showing difference in the origin of these two kinds of features ).
Estimated cost to rebuild the basics = £100 billion. The worst affected area was in the central part of Kobe including the main docks and port area. This area is built on incompetent rocks, especially the port itself which is built on reclaimed ground. Here the ground underwent liquefaction and acting like a plastic, allowed buildings to topple sideways. Emergency aid for the city needed to use damaged roads but many of them were destroyed during the earthquake.
The intense pressure at the base of the glacier causes some of the ice to melt, forming a thin layer of subglacial water. This water flows into cracks in the bedrock. As the water refreezes, the ice acts as a lever loosening the rock by lifting it. The fractured rock is thus incorporated into the glacier’s load and is carried along as the glacier slowly moves. Abrasion happens when the glacier’s ice and rock fragments act as sandpaper,
When the storm struck New Orleans and the levees failed, the low-lying lands flooded at record levels. As only a category 3 storm, Hurricane Katrina could have caused much less damage then it did if the levees held. The reason for the levee failure was due to an engineering fault, leaving the levees prone to malfunction. Tens of thousands of victims were either forced from their homes due to the flooding, or lost their lives trying to ride out the storm. The impoverished areas of New Orleans suffered the greatest losses because the houses were poorly built and many people were not educated on the danger of the coming storm.
While bringing it up, it may crush going through all the water pressure levels of the sea.The water pressure is very strong at the bottom of the ocean where ti Titan is placed. If this were to happen what would have been the point of bringing it up? To officially destruct and ruin the past of the Titanic. Not to mention other than destruction and disregard the Titanic its also like stealing from the many people who died there that night. That is now a sacred sea and as we all know, stealing is disrespectful.
As Katrina lashed the coast of New Orleans, the gusts of wind increased and the waves began to erode the only sense of security this, below sea level, city ever had against the many miles of water systems surrounding it. Most outside spectators and local residents thought that the waves rose up over the levees protecting the city; however, further investigations proved this theory wrong. After Katrina subsided and left in her wake massive destruction, it was discovered that New Orleans was flooded due to poor structural engineering. According to experts, a large percentage of the massive flooding could have been prevented ("Radical Environments", n.d.). A large
