Definition Erosion is the picking up and carrying away of pieces of weathered rock.
Erosion happens when the crust is exposed to: Water Wind Ice
Water Erosion Moving water can push and carry things along with it. –Helped to create the Grand Canyon –Causes beaches to disappear in the U.S. –Forms deltas –Most common type of erosion
The Grand Canyon
Wind Erosion Wind picks up small particles and moves them. –Can deposit sand in large piles called sand dunes. –Great factor in the 1930s Dust Bowl
Glacial Erosion Glaciers wear away the land as they move over it; ice freezes onto rock and scrapes away the surfaces. –How the Great Lakes were formed –Least common type of erosion.

Weathering. Definition Weathering is the breakdown of materials of the Earths crust into smaller pieces. (sediment) No movement is involved. Surface or.
True or False: The Earths surface has stayed the same for thousands of years.
