Description

A 12-Question quiz on erosion, transportation and deposition according to the 2016 specification of AQA geography. It's still the same for an Edexcel certificate in geography - you just might want to check the definitions.

Resource summary

Question 1

Question
Which process of erosion matches with the definition? The force of the water breaks particles away from the river channel.
Answer
  • Hydraulic action
  • Abrasion
  • Attrition
  • Saltation

Question 2

Question
Abrasion is when eroded rocks smash into each other and break into smaller fragments.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 3

Question
[blank_start]Abrasion[blank_end] is what happens when eroded rocks are [blank_start]picked[blank_end] up by the river. They scrape and rub against the river [blank_start]channel[blank_end], wearing it away. The [blank_start]most[blank_end] erosion happens this way.
Answer
  • Abrasion
  • Attrition
  • Saltation
  • Hydraulic Action
  • picked
  • eroded
  • smashed
  • broken
  • channel
  • valley
  • most
  • least

Question 4

Question
Which is the definition of 'solution' (in terms of erosion)?
Answer
  • The force of the water breaks particles away from the river channel.
  • Some types of rocks are dissolved, for example, chalk and limestone.
  • Eroded rocks smash into each other and break into smaller fragments.

Question 5

Question
[blank_start]Hydraulic action[blank_end] is when the force of the [blank_start]water[blank_end] [blank_start]breaks[blank_end] particles [blank_start]away from[blank_end] the river [blank_start]channel[blank_end].
Answer
  • Hydraulic action
  • Attrition
  • Abrasion
  • Solution
  • water
  • earthquake
  • earth
  • wind
  • channel
  • valley
  • bank
  • away from
  • into
  • breaks
  • smashes

Question 6

Question
Traction is when large particles like boulders are pushed along the river bed by the force of the water.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 7

Question
Saltation is when small particles like silt and clay are carried along in the water.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 8

Question
Match the definition with the correct word: Pebble sized particles are bounced along the river bed by the force of the water.
Answer
  • Saltation
  • suspension
  • traction
  • solution

Question 9

Question
[blank_start]Transportation[blank_end] is the [blank_start]movement[blank_end] of eroded [blank_start]material[blank_end].
Answer
  • Transportation

Question 10

Question
[blank_start]Suspension[blank_end] is when small [blank_start]particles[blank_end] such as [blank_start]silt[blank_end] and clay are [blank_start]carried[blank_end] along in the [blank_start]river[blank_end] water.
Answer
  • Suspension
  • saltation
  • solution
  • traction
  • things
  • limestone
  • granite
  • pumice
  • rolled
  • bounced
  • washed

Question 11

Question
[blank_start]Deposition[blank_end] is when a [blank_start]river[blank_end] drops [blank_start]eroded[blank_end] material.
Answer
  • Deposition

Question 12

Question
Which of the options below are reasons that a river would drop eroded material?
Answer
  • It gets bored.
  • The amount of eroded material increases
  • The river loses velocity
  • The river reaches a meander
  • The water is deeper
  • The water is shallower
  • There is more water in the river
  • The amount of water in the river drops
  • The river reaches its mouth
