Our changing earth. Part 2. Wearing away of the land

United States, 1959

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Many forces wear away the land, but what is worn away in one place goes to build up in another. Shows how rocks are decomposed; how caves and sink holes are made; and how glaciers are formed and the work they do; how blowing sand erodes the surface of the earth; and how the waves are reshaping the coastline.
