Rock cycle

Like most Earth materials ,rocks are created and destroyed in cycles. The rock cycle is a model that describes the formation, breakdown, and reformation of rocks. Aloso known as Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition. W.E.D.

WEATHERING

is the breaking down of rocks, soil and minerals as well as artificial materials through contact with water, air, wind, nature and time.

EROSION

is a process by wich soil and rocks are removed from the Earth's surface by exogenic processes such as wind or water flow, and then transported and deposited in other locations.

DEPOSITION

is the geological process by wich sediments, soil, and rocks are added to a landform or land mass.Wind, ice, and water , as well as sediment following via gravity ,transport previously eroded sediments, wich, at the loss of enough kinetic energy in the fluid, is deposited, building up layers of sediment.
