Erosion and Weathering

Parent Category: Geology
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.
ya it may be possible that by the using role scoper results in soil  erosion
Both.   While most of the landmass of Earth is made of igneous and  metamorphic rocks, most of the rocks that we can actually see (i.e.  those on the surface) are sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks are formed  from deposition by forces like rivers, waves and glaciers.  Sediment, however, comes...
your butt is open,your shirt is open ,your oten is open thats all.
People erosion is when the soles of peoples shoes where down the rocks that they are walking on.
geographic position. if you have, theoretically, multiples the same  rock and place them all across the earth (beaches, deserts,  riverbeds, snow-capped mountains) they are going to weather in  different ways and at different rates
The roots of trees are of primary importance in preventing soil erosion, because they physically hold the soil in place, and also because they transport water up from the ground, thus supporting other plants and preventing salinisation of the soil. The leaf canopies are also important for soil...
In Strip Cropping, grass and other plants that grow close to the ground are planted in strips between bands of grain crops.
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...
No, they are opposites.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
the uppermost layer of soil is loose.when wind blows , it can carry away topsoil.when rain falls and water flows on the land, much topsoil is carried away.erosion by wind water removes much of topsoil.
Without agents of erosion, weathered particles would remain in the same place. Through erosion, however, weathered particles are carried to new locations.
Water, ice, gravity, and wind.
All the mentioned process work to change the course of the river, deepening valleys, and carrying sediment to lakes, seas and oceans.
Organic organisms affect erosion by influencing soil formationprocesses and soil properties. They assist in the formation ofhumus by decomposing leaves and twigs. The decomposition intoorganic matter influences macro- and micro-nutrient amounts, suchas of calcium, magnesium and potassium, and pH...
yes there is erosion on earth
It blocks the erosion from happening. That is why it prevents/reduces the effects of erosion
Where there are both high winds and loose material. You will most likely find these two components together in the Earth's great deserts. I would say that the deserts of the Southwestern US, African Sahara, Saudi Arabia, Asian Gobi, and Australian Outback would be prime candidates. FYI: Sand dunes...
Weathering and erosion is wind or water that breaks away rock or soil. The rocks they carry can erode away other rocks.
Presumably you mean rocks. Well, mountains erode into rivers, which take the eroded matter downstream and deposit them into the sea. This then forms a sea bed of sand, which compresses underneath more sand to form solid rock again. This rock is then usually pushed (by tectonic movement) into new...
Vegetation prevents erosion in several different ways. First, the roots of plants hold the soil in place and keep it from washing away in rainstorms. Second, vegetation provides ground cover which keeps hard rain from washing away soil. Third, trees provide windbreaks which keep high winds from...
The most dominant type of erosion on earth is running water.
Erosion can damage statues because the water or wind is constantly grinding against statues. (acts like sand paper)
People and animals cause erosion simply by moving soil.    Animals might cause erosion by over grazing or burrowing, but  humans cause much more through construction, farming, and other  large displacements.
The water erosion caused by the Colorado River over millions of years.
two examples of mechanical weathering are called wind ,and water.
I think it is an example of erosion, since erosion is the process that moves weathered material from one spot to a different one
the motion would take a lot of less time, and it would take more time.
Clearing land for construction (road, building), farming, open-pit mining, clear-cut forestry, etc.
they have tried to stop erosion buy pooping in the soil it works
Name a feature that is formed by underground erosion
Erosion occurs when a rock is carried away from where it was weathered. It makes the rock fragments rounded and small.
 Weathering is the breaking down of rocks, soil andminerals as well as artificial materials  through contact with the Earth's atmosphere, biota and waters. Weathering occurs   in situ, or "with no movement", and thus should  not be confused with erosion, which involves the movement of rocks ...
deposition mass movement
It breaks down rocks and material in the ocean
  == Answer ==   they form insoluble quaternary ammonium salts
We may not realize that we can be walking on and or making a path
ice water soil wind gravity
Not letting cattle over graze. (P.S. WARRIOR CATS ROCKS!!)
No, because that will allow precipitation to run more easily straight downhill. Since contour lines on a topographic map indicate a consistent level or altitude, it would be best to plow parallel to these lines. Plowing in a line with level will provide the best strategy to erosion abatement.
I asked the same question! The steeper one will of course loose it's topsoil. Because the soil at the top of the hill can't stay up at steep hill, eventually gravity will pull it down to a reasonably flat ground. A sloping area topsoil will not fall because it can easily grip on the ground without...
This answer maybe different for other countries, but here in North American no such crop exists. Farmers may just leave the field untilled until next year, or not till at all and instead adopt no-till practices for producing next year's harvest.
Erosion sometimes carries good soil away; without good soil, plants do not grow well; crops are poorer; less food is produced
it is physical weathering. it is also called mechanical weathering
The activities that aid in the formation and deposition of soil is rain, sun, & hail.
Some factors that affect the rate of weathering are the type ofrock, the altitude and the climate.
it is both but without deposition it is constructive.
Deltas are formed by constructive erosion.
It means soil is spilt
no. oxidation is a chemical reaction that involves an atom or a molecule losing electrons in a chemical reaction. Mechanical weathering would be something like water seeping into cracks in a rock, then freezing and breaking that rock apart.
get a lot of trees planted and other plants that could help
coastal erosion can cause severe problems agriculture land may be lost buildings destroyed and transport links put in danger
Weather helps because some people want rain but some people cant work in rain or snow so changing weather helps alout.Erosions dont really help many human. . - Jupneet .
Clearcutting is an act of cutting down many trees in an area, it can cause mud slides on a slope or even destroy a smaller mountain.
weathering breaks ddown rocks and bulid up the land in small little peices of rocks
The definition of audience erosion refers to a change in the  audience of a particular television series. Networks typically pay  close attention to the 18-49 demographic.
it is the earth, moon and sun and some other few planets if u wish but not anything else
Rivers and streams carry sediments by the force of moving water. This is erosion. When the moving water slows down, its ability to carry sediments decreases. Sediments are deposited (deposition) when the forces of friction and gravity overcome the force of the moving water.
No it's an agent of physical weathering
    An example of erosion is if let's say that there was a river on top of a mountain. As time passes by, the water will rub against the rocks and it will rub against it so much that it will go through the rocks and then it will end up splitting through the mountain.     An example of...
Abrasion/corrasion: The wearing away of cliffs by sand, shingle and boulders being thrown at them by the waves. It is the most effective and rapid method of erosion and is worse on coasts open to storm waves.
  Each state is responsible for the waters within its jurisdiction. States are required by law to set water quality standards for these water bodies; they are to also classify each water body as A, B, C, D, and sometimes, I; each class is designated for a purpose such as swimming, fishing,...
we step on them everyday and roots are so strong that they break apart the rocks
Detachment:soil particles are detached from the soil mass due to rain splash. Transport: deposition
