EROSION NOTES EROSION: The process by which weathered rock and soil particles are moved from one place to another.
DEPOSITION The process by which sediments are laid down in new locations
GRAVITY Pulls rock and soil down slopes It is also called mass wasting
WIND Wind is most active agent of erosion in deserts, in plowed fields and on beaches It can create sand dunes
RUNNING WATER Running water is the major cause of erosion Examples: – Rivers – Streams – Rain water runoff
GLACIERS Glacial ice erodes by abrasion and by carrying sediments with them as they move
WAVES Powerful forces of waves constantly erodes and shapes the shoreline – Creates: sea cliffscaves beachessand bars
