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.
Creep is the slow mass movement of soil particles down a slope. Itis so slow that we do not see it happen. Creep is often shown inthe form of tilted objects along the slope.
ya it may be possible that by the using role scoper results in soilerosion
Both. While most of the landmass of Earth is made of igneous andmetamorphic rocks, most of the rocks that we can actually see (i.e.those on the surface) are sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks are formedfrom deposition by forces like rivers, waves and glaciers.Sediment, however, comes from eroded...
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 samerock and place them all across the earth (beaches, deserts,riverbeds, snow-capped mountains) they are going to weather indifferent 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...
Weathering is the physical wearing down of rock or the earth, and erosion is the movement of the particles loosened by weathering. Weathering can be either mechanical or chemical. For chemical weathering to occur, a chemical reaction needs to occur in the ground, causing it to wear away. Mechanical...
No, they are opposites.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
Wind Erosion is a Destructive Force.
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.
groynes are a fence or wall going into the sea to trap sand
erosion can never help the environment indeed it affects environment
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...
The fossil record is incomplete because not all fossils have been discovered. In actuality it is unlikely that all fossils will ever be discovered given the hit and miss nature of fossil discovery which usually occurs through educated guess work. The fossil record will likely never be complete.
Fields are left unprotected in the wind Fields are left unplanted for several weeks There are steep hillsides
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...
They both help in re-modification of earths landforms and structures.
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, buthumans cause much more through construction, farming, and otherlarge displacements.
The water erosion caused by the Colorado River over millions of years.
I have no idea I was asked the same question
yes taco bell is a example of erosion
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.
to help others by tricking them
Weathering is the breaking down of rocks , soil and minerals as well as artificial materialsthrough contact with the Earth's atmosphere , biota and waters. Weathering occurs in situ , or "with no movement", and thus shouldnot be confused with erosion , which involves the movement of...
hmm youu are not serious for asking that kind of stupid question
deposition mass movement
It breaks down rocks and material in the ocean
Answer . they form insoluble quaternary ammonium salts
gravity causes wind,running water,glaciers,waves,and,rain to occur.without it theses would not occur.
Does granite weather when shaken?
We may not realize that we can be walking on and or making a path
a stream or river that has low gradient has less energy for erosion
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.
Yes. They can also help protect the soil with leaves to prevent precipitation striking the soil with enough force to dislodge it.
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
Erosions happen mainly due to the agents of erosion, such as rain water, running water etc. It depends on the amount and strength of water, to increase the rate of erosion. Erosions mostly happen, when it's raining, so it also depends on the weather.
The activities that aid in the formation and deposition of soil is rain, sun, & hail.
Sometimes erosion happens very fast. For example, in times of flood, rivers can cause a lot of damage through erosion. Also during storms the sea can erode large portions of a beach.
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.
Glaciers move (very slowly) therefore functioning as a source of erosion. They are also a source of weathering "in situ" due to their freeze/thaw cycles causing expansion/contraction of adjacent stone, causing physical deformation.
Yes. It's the same substance, just in smaller pieces.
Deltas are formed by constructive erosion.
waves containing acid eat away at substances
It means soil is spilt
