weathering erosion processes

WEATHERING

The process of weathering typically begins when the earth's crust is uplifted by tectonic forces. After the physical breakup and chemical decay of exposed rocks by weathering, the loosened rock fragments and alterations products are carried away through the process of erosion. 3. Erosion relies on transporting agents such as wind, rivers, ice

Tectonic Geomorphology: Weathering and Erosion

Sep 22, 2021This activity was designed for students in central Pennsylvania, but can certainly be adapted. This activity helps students integrate observations of geology and topography, and then to contextualize modern topography in terms of erosion processes and hence rock strength. Note that many of the days are viable as stand-alone activities, and do not require the full unit.

NCERT Notes: Geomorphic Processes

Geomorphological processes are natural mechanisms of erosion, weathering, and deposition that result in the alteration of the surficial materials and landforms at the surface of the earth. This brings about changes in the shape of the surface of the earth which is known as geomorphic processes. Mass wasting, weathering, deposition, and erosion

Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition

Erosion Erosion is the movement of soil by water or wind. After weathering turns rocks into smaller pieces or soil, then often erosion takes place and moves the smaller pieces away. Rivers and streams are constantly getting deeper into the crust of the earth. They will continue to slowly move more and more soil and sand downstream.
