27. B, A, then C
28. calcite
29. chemical weathering
30. soil
31. They fell. They fell from the cliff under the influence of gravity.
32. They became smaller and more rounded.
33.

34. pebble or pebbles
35. larger size, more dense, more rounded
36. Stream sediments are layered, sorted (by size). Stream particles are less rounded and do not usually have striations (scratches).
37. Deposit B is the stream deposit because it has some sorting and contains some large particles.
38. glacial ice
39. sorting of sizes and a lack of large particles such as pebbles
40. Accept answers in the range of 0.01 to 0.1 centimeters.
41. Decayed organic material; primarily the re­mains of plants.
42. Answers may include weathered rock, min­erals, or inorganic content.
43. solid bedrock
44. water of a stream
45. The water slowed.
46. graded bedding or horizontal grading or horizontal sorting
47. 300 cm/sec

34. Accept either 2300 meters or 7500 feet.
35. Greenland is farther north than most of North America.
36. The Greenland valleys are mostly U-shaped, whereas unglaciated valleys are generally V-shaped.
37. The Greenland glaciated rock surfaces tend to be polished, striated (scratched), grooved and have such streamlined structures as whalebacks (roches moutonnées).
38. The ice-deposited sediments are not layered and contain a greater range of particle sizes mixed together. (Water-deposited sedi­ments generally show layering and separa­tion of sediments by sizes.)
39.
