Destruction Caused by Earthquakes

1. Destruction Caused by Earthquakes

Earthquakes are well-known for their damage and destruction, and in this video lesson you will learn about the different types of damage that these dangerous natural disasters can cause.

Effect of Erosion and Deposition on Landforms

2. Effect of Erosion and Deposition on Landforms

Landforms are constantly being broken down and reformed by the processes of weathering, erosion, and deposition. In this lesson, we explore chemical and physical weathering and how the face of the earth gets changed.

The Effect of Ice Age Glaciers: Formation of Pluvial Lakes

3. The Effect of Ice Age Glaciers: Formation of Pluvial Lakes

Ice age glaciers caused erosion and deposition, which resulted in unique features such as horns, cirques, lakes, U-shaped valleys, moraines and drumlins. Indirect effects include pluvial lakes, isostatic depression and a change in sea level.

Changes in Sea Level: Causes & the Effect on the Environment

4. Changes in Sea Level: Causes & the Effect on the Environment

Sea level rise is a natural process, but recent trends are concerning because it is increasing at an alarming rate. In this lesson, you'll learn what causes changes in sea level and what effect rising sea level has on humans and the environment.

Global Climate Change: Effects and Mitigation Strategies

5. Global Climate Change: Effects and Mitigation Strategies

In this video lesson, you will learn about the potential effects of global climate change. You will also learn how some are working to better understand climate change in order to slow the rate of temperature increase on Earth.
