About This Chapter
CEOE Earth Science: Earth Science Phenomena & Social Implications - Chapter Summary
Preparing for the CEOE Earth Science exam isn't that difficult, as you can use this chapter to learn about important earth science topics such as pluvial lakes and mitigation strategies. Other subjects you can explore through this chapter include:
- Deposition and erosion's effect on landforms
- Earthquake destruction
- Effects of global climate change
- Causes in sea level change
- The formation of ice age glaciers
Our lessons feature a video format, which makes it easy to pick out and remember important details that you might see on the exam. They also speed up the learning process, saving you time and mental energy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
