Clues

  • a theory that considers the Earth to be a single, self- regulating system (4, 10)
  • deposits of dense minerals carried by water e.g. tin + gold (6, 7)
  • materials or processes that involve material being carried by air or water then deposited (11)
  • process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil (12)
  • processes or deposits associated with hot water (12)
  • rocks changed by intense heat + pressure, but without fully melting (11)
  • the average length of time that a molecule remains in a reservoir (9, 4)
  • the charecteristics of a soil based on the aggregation of soil particles into peds (4, 9)
  • the charecteristics of a soil based on the proportions of the mineral particles that are sand, silt and clay (4, 7)
  • the natural nutrient enrichment of a water body, can be accelerated by human actions such as, sewage and fetilisers (14)
