Erosion is the physical movement of rocks and soil and weathering is the chemical breakdown of rocks. Both natural processes can change earth's landscapes greatly.
The denudation of the soil cover and subsequent washing down is described as soil erosion. The processes of soil formation and erosion, go on simultaneously and generally there is a balance between the two. Sometimes, this balance is disturbed due to human activities like deforestation, over-grazing…

Waterfalls often cause erosion, but a waterfall is not a 'type' of erosion in itself. The power of the water, as it hits the bottom, picks up dirt and sand that act as abrasives, grinding away at the rock. PBS in the United States has recently shown a very impressive documentary about the formation …

Rain water contains carbonic acid which slowly dissolves rocks, especially the carbonate variety, such as limestone. Moving water carries small rock particles to larger and larger bodies of water, until they may end up in the ocean as silt, clay, and sand. Water freezing in the cracks of rocks a…

Frost wedging occurs when liquid water flows into rock cracks and crevices and then expands upon freezing. The wedging creates a deeper or larger crack which can then be further expanded by additional frost wedging. Additionally, the frost wedging creates additional rock surface which can then be at…

Answer Ice Weathering is when water seeps into a rock. When it gets cold the water turns into ice and expands. It then creates a crack or even split the rock entirely.

Erosion is when rocks or sand rub together, and over millions of years it breaks down into dust, sand, or what ever you might call it. Erosion wears away the land. The land is worn away by wind and water erosion. Raindrops cause splash erosion.

Freeze-thaw action is when water seeps into a crack in a rock, as the temperature drops below freezing, the water freezes and expands causing the crack to enlarge. The ice then melts into water again as the temperature rises above 0 degrees C. This action is repeated until the rock breaks.

Mechanical weathering is caused by ice by water seeping into a crack in, say, a rock. The water then freezes, pushing the crack a little wider. And next time, even wider. And so on. This process is called ice wedging.Mechanical weathering is caused by growing roots in a similar way. The roots grow b…
