      Rivers and streams complete the hydrologic cycle by returning precipitation that falls on land to the oceans (Figure ). Ultimately, gravity is the driving force, as water moves from mountainous regions to sea level. Some of this water moves over the surface and some moves through the ground as this water flows it does the work of both erosion and deposition.   Earth and Life Science Lesson 3: Earth Systems Content Standard The learners demonstrate an understanding of the subsystems (geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere) that make up the Earth. Performance Standard The learners shall be able to make a concept map and use it to explain how the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and.

Mass movement, also called Mass Wasting, bulk movements of soil and rock debris down slopes in response to the pull of gravity, or the rapid or gradual sinking of the Earth’s ground surface in a predominantly vertical direction.

Formerly, the term mass wasting referred to a variety of processes by which large masses of crustal materials are moved by gravity from one place to another.The major volcanic landform is a patera, a caldera-like depression, and several contain lava lakes. Several volcanoes produce long lava flows, including the longest known active flow in the solar system.

Interaction between hot lava flows and sulfur dioxide, probably from the substrate, results in plumes that move location as the flow advances.From Mother Earth Flows the River of Life () Series of Old Memories () These are scenes I recall while growing up on the reserve.
