What is meant by exogenous and endogenous factors?

endogenous / exogenous Term referring to the variables, which are called endogenous if they are explained by others, belonging to the same model and, specularly, exogenous, if they are not determined within the model, but have a predetermined value from the outside.

What is the difference between endogenous and exogenous forces?

The endogenous forces depend on the conditions of the interior of the planet and are linked to the action of volcanoes and earthquakes; the latter, on the other hand, depend on the energy that the Earth receives from the Sun and are manifested by the action of wind, heat, and water.

What do exogenous agents cause?

The phenomena that cause erosion are exogenous agents, so called because they shape the earth's surface by acting from the outside. The action of exogenous agents, through the interaction with the surface geosphere, basically tends to level the solid surface.

What are the forces acting on the outside of the Earth?

exogenous forces ▶ Exogenous forces are those that act from the outside on the earth's surface. These forces are visible in the action of atmospheric agents (temperature changes, wind, precipitation) and water (rivers, glaciers, the sea) which continually modify the landscape.

What are the endogenous vitamins?

Furthermore, on the antioxidant front we have endogenous substances, therefore produced by our body, (such as glutathione, catalase and superoxide dismutase) and exogenous antioxidant substances (vitamins A, C and E, lipoic acid, lycopene, coenzyme Q10 ...) taken with food, drugs or supplements.

What are the most serious endogenous phenomena?

Volcanoes and earthquakes are some manifestations of endogenous forces, that is, the forces that come from inside the Earth and modify it. This makes us understand that our planet is still young and alive, in constant transformation.

What natural forces have a constructive function?

While the endogenous forces have a predominantly constructive function, the exogenous forces have a predominantly destructive function.

What is the difference between endogenous and exogenous phenomena?

Wind, sea, river waters and glaciers are exogenous factors. Coastal erosion is mainly caused by two exogenous factors: wind and sea waters. Endogenous: it means instead "born (-genic) in the interior (endo)", ie from the inside of the Earth.

What are the agents of terrestrial modeling?

The modeling of the earth's surface The appearance of the earth's surface is continuously modified by the action of endogenous forces and exogenous forces, which act through processes of meteoric degradation, erosion, transport and sedimentation.

What are exogenous forces and how do they work?

The exogenous forces: the exogenous agents, are born and act on the surface of the Earth. The exogenous agents are: wind, • water, ice, rain; • thermal changes; • living organisms. ... Water is the exogenous force that contributes most to transform and shape the terrestrial landscapes.
