Erosion is the wearing away of the surface of the earth!Erosion is the process by which soil and rock are removed from the Earth's surface by natural processes such as wind or water flow, and then transported and deposited in other locations.

  1. the process of eroding or being eroded by wind, water, or other natural agents
  2. The gradual destruction or diminution of something: "the erosion of support for the party"
The wearing away of land or soil by the action of wind, water, or ice.
In hydrologic terms, wearing away of the lands by running water, glaciers,winds, and waves, can be subdivided into three process: Corrasion, Corrosion, and Transportation. Weathering, although sometimes included here, is a distant process which does not imply removal of any material
wearing away of rock or soil by the gradual detachment of soil or rock fragments by water, wind, ice, and other mechanical or chemical forces.the wearing away of the earth's surface by running water, wind, ice, or other geological agents; processes, including weathering, dissolution, abrasion, corrosion, and transportation, by which material is removed from the earth's surface

What is erosion and depositions?

hi! erosion and deposition are forces that changes landscapes. erosion forces are wind, water. And deposition is mostly wind. Erosion is a force that moves sediments. Depositi
