Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition

Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition are the processes that change Earth's surface and create landforms.

Weathering is the process of breaking rocks down into smaller pieces. Weathering makes landforms smaller or deeper. Weathering is responsible for creating canyons and valleys.

Erosion is the process of moving sediments to a new place.

Deposition is the process of dropping sediments down. Deposition makes landforms larger. Deposition is responsible for making sand dunes and canyons.
