This MEGA bundle includes the Weathering, Erosion and Deposition Super Bundle, the Glaciers Super Bundle and the Cavern Super Bundle.
Weathering, Erosion and Deposition:
This colorful and detailed PowerPoint and bundle covers mechanical and chemical weathering, erosion and deposition. This PPT includes descriptions and photos examples of each.
Mechanical weathering covers abrasion, ice wedging, organic activity (including root wedging), uploading (including exfoliation) and gravitational impact (including rockslide, mudflow and creep).
Chemical weathering covers oxidation, hydrolysis, dissolution (carbonic acid and sulfuric acid), hydration and plant acids.
And finally, the rate of weathering is discussed. Weathering is affected by the type of rock, the climate and the size of the particles being weathered.

This colorful and detailed PowerPoint and bundle covers the types of glaciers, parts of a glacier, and features created by weathering, erosion and depositions as the glacier moves.
A glacier is a thick ice mass that forms over hundreds or thousands of years. First, the types of glaciers and different parts of the glacier. Glacial types include valley glacier, piedmont glacier, ice sheet and ice cap. Parts of a glacier include zone of accumulation and zone of ablation.
Next, the process in a glacier that causes erosion is discussed. This erosion can cause specific features left behind by the glacier. These features include, glacial troughs, horns, arêtes, hanging valleys, cirques, tarns and fjords.
Finally, glacial deposition is discussed. As glaciers weather and erode rock, the sediments, or drift, are moved and deposited. These deposits are called moraines and are named for where they are deposited and whether they were carried by the glacial ice or the glacial melt water. Glacial moraines include lateral moraine, end moraine, terminal moraine, ground moraine, medial moraine and recessional moraine. Some deposition occurs beyond the reach of the glacier in an area called the outwash plain and can produce kettle lakes due to dead ice from calving. And some deposition occurs under the glacier creating features called drumlins, eskers, and kames.

This colorful and detailed PowerPoint and bundle covers the types of caverns, how a cavern is formed and cavern decorations called speleothems.
Types of caves include dissolution caverns caused by carbonic and sulfuric acid, ice caves, and lava or water caves called flow caves.
Cavern formation is common in a karst area and is due to an abundance of water in an area with soluble bedrock. So weathering, erosion and deposition inside a cave is covered.
A fun deposition feature in a cave is a speleothem or cave decoration. These include flowstones, stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, soda straws and columns.
Embedded videos also show scuba driving through underwater caverns and the Cave of Crystals.
