Part1 Weathering Erosion Deposition

Izabelle Bradley

  • Weathering-natural process by which atmospheric and environmental agents, such as wind, rain, and temperature changes, disintegrate and decompose rocks.
  • Erosion-the process by which wind, water, ice, or gravity transports soil and sediment from one location to another.
  • Deposition-the process in which material is laid down.
  • Chemical Weathering-the process by which rocks break down as a result of chemical reaction.
  • Types of Chemical Weathering
  1. water
  2. wind
  3. air
  4. acids

Mechanical/Physical Weathering

  • The process by which rocks break down into smaller pieces by physical means.
  • Different types of mechanical weathering are...
  1. Ice
  2. Living Things
  3. Water
  4. Air
  • Examples of Mechanical Weathering are...
  1. gouging
  2. plucking
  3. abrasion
