Nathan's Bucket List
April 10, 2014
Wind and water caused some of the mountain to break away to form jagged areas on the mountain. Gravity would have made the rocks fall down and most likely break down on its own while descending if it had broken off of a tall mountain.
The weathering and erosion that takes most often here is wind erosion because it would be picking up sand and hitting the rocks with the sand until it left an arch like the picture below.
Great Pyramid of Giza
The weathering and erosion that battered the pyramids is wind erosion. The wind would be carrying sand and it would be pounding on the pyramids when the wind was there.
The weathering that would have taken place is water because it would have broken down pebbles into sand. Then the water would have carried some sediment away to deposit at the bottom of the ocean.
The weathering is physical weathering which is ice. The water when the ice melted would most likely carry away some of the sediments, and then the process starts over again.
