Science-Landscape Changes

"A variety of natural features called landforms make up Earth’s surface. Earth’s land is always changing due to the forces constantly acting on its landforms. Constructive forces may build landforms in one area of the world, while destructive forces may weather a landform somewhere else. These forces may happen quickly or slowly over long periods of time. Rapid changes occur within hours, days, or weeks, and are often caused by volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, landslides, floods, and tornadoes. Slow changes to Earth’s surface occur over periods from decades to tens of thousands of years, and are usually caused by winds, moving water, and glaciers."
