(The most exciting aspect of ESS)
Water- Oceans, rivers, and rain play a key role in water erosion. Wind- Common in dry, barren regions with little water and vegetation. Ice- The most prominent example of Ice erosion can be seen through the movement of Glaciers. Gravity- Influences almost all types of erosion. Erosion - The process through which rock is removed or worn down.
DDeposition- The process of depositing rock fragments as sediment. RRivers deposit sediment and wash chemical elements out to sea. OOceans create formations such as arches and sea stacks. Arch Sea Stack
Wind Wind is a crucial part of weathering and erosion in desert climates. Wind erodes substances through a process known as abrasion Abrasion- When rock particles collide with other rocks and grind them away.
DDue to their massive size, glaciers move and erode any land within their path. AA common way glaciers erode is through plucking, the process in which the ice moves till and forms moraines. TTill – A mixture of rocks and minerals transported by a glacier. MMoraines – Lines of accumulated till left behind. Moraines
Gravity affects many types of erosion. K.S The process of leaving rock fragments behind as sediment is known as?
