, but looking back at the previous Street View. In both views, think about if the slope is flatter at the top or steeper? What is the form of that slope and what does it tell you about the dominant process ?
The concave slope form indicates that water does not sink into the ground (allowing the out-and-down motion of creep), but rather it flows over the surface in small channels called rills. Correct! The convex hillslope indicates the soil creep is the dominant process moving materials down the slope. What a great view! Vegetation-covered soil on slopes without evidence of overland flow (rills and gullies) like these are dominated by slope creep. Wetting during winer rains pushes the soil outward, and drying allows the soil to move down the slope with gravity -- as illustrated in the out-and-down motion Links to an external site. . Question 3 0 / 0.3 pts Using Google Street Views, you are at Haybutte Overlook (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. , South Dakota, virtually. In this view, examine the slopes form. Picture yourself at the bottom of the ephemeral wash trying to walk up to one of the hillcrests. Do you get the impression that the slopes are steeper as you go up? What is the form of that slope and what does it tell you about the dominant process ?
