What is lateral erosion?
lateral erosion is the action of making a stream wider. The hydraulic action of the current hits one side of the bank with enough energy so that the material of the eroded bank falls into the stream and disintegrates. At the same time, the stream moves outwards towards towards the direction of erosion.

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. . the process of eroding or being eroded by wind, water, or other natural agents . 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
People erosion is when the soles of peoples shoes where down the rocks that they are walking on.
Vertical erosion is when a river for example erodes downwards. Lateral erosion is when it erodes sideways. H.H.K.:D
One example of erosion is muddy water flowing after a heavy rain.
Erosion occurs when a rock is carried away from where it was weathered. It makes the rock fragments rounded and small.
erosion formed by running water during a wide flow
Not as you are used to on Earth surface. Erosion is caused mainly by water and air movement, which do not exist on the Moon's surface. However, seismic activity and impact…s from asteroids may cause effects not dissimilar to erosion.
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.
soon ___________ Later is any time that is after an arbitrary point in time. "He went to the opera. Later that night he had indigestion." "Gregory, do your homework." …"I'll do it later." [implying "later than this moment"]
wind and water are the 2 causes of weathering and erosion
Erosion occur via natural or man- made weathering. For example, Rocks (ignious) weather to form sand. Weathering is as it sounds: the process that causes erosion by Rain (acid… rain included), Flooding, hail, etc. the rain fills the cracks in a rock (for example) then freezes with the temprature. Then when the temprature gets above freezing the particles in the rock get excited and during that motion the H2O particles from the melted ice merge together which causes the physical properties of the rock to separate to make room. This is the cause of a crack, once there are enough cracks then the rock will break down. The process continues until the rock particles are granulated like sand. I hope this helps, if you want it "dummed down" then basically, it rains, the water gets into the rock, the rock starts to crack, the rock breaks, the rock continues to do so until it is sand (or otherwise depending upon the rock)
Erosion is the process of carrying bits of rocks and other materials. There are two types of erosion called water erosion and wind erosion.
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 deposition is if let's say there is a river. As rocks and dirt fall into the water the river will carry the rocks and dirt down into an ocean or sea, and that will drop off the dirt somewhere else and so on.
Erosion is the process where material is moved from one location on the surface of the earth to another. There are a number of techniques used to try and control this process.… The introduction of plants is used quite often for bringing soil erosion under control. The roots that they form in the soil act to bind or hold the soil together preventing it from being washed or blown away. Also vegetation cover acts to decrease the rate which rainfall reaches the ground surface helping to reduce run off and in turn reduce the rate of soil erosion by this moving water. Another method to prevent soil erosion is the use of geosynthetic mats. These are man made sheets or mats composed of various materials that are pegged into place on the surface in localised areas that are prone to erosion (for example footpaths in national parks that receive significant numbers of hikers). The lateral movement of sand along a beach (and ultimately along an entire coast line) due to prevailing currents / wind directions can cause significant losses of material. This process is natural and is known as longshore drift. In some areas, to prevent or reduce the impact of longshore drift, groynes (vertical walls of rock fill or even timber) are constructed perpendicular to the long axis of the beach which help prevent longshore drift from removing the sand. Another coastal protection measure that helps to reduce eriosion and weathering is the use of rock fill (large boulder sized pieces of rock greater than 25.6 cm in diameter) that are placed at the base of cliffs composed of soft materials. These act as breakwaters and dissipate wave energy before it reaches the cliff so preventing or significantly reducing the potential for weathering and erosion. The above is a summary of a small number of examples of how erosion may be reduced or eliminated. There are probably a significant number of other methods! For more information on mass movements / landslides which are also a form of erosion and how then can be stopped, please see the related question.
Differential erosion occurs when a geologic area was formed of both soft and weak rocks rocks, are harder, more resistant, rocks, weak rocks wear away first leaving behind kno…bs and cliffs of more resistant rocks.
Erosion is the process of the movement of loosened materials from one place to another, and generally occurs when the material is exposed to ice, water or wind, and gravity. I… also have a small penis (and i got ring sting).
rivers aren't permanently the same shape, through different methods rivers can be eroded and shaped over long periods of time. i will give four Hydraulic action, this is where… the sheer force of the water forces the river side to be eaten away, this can be through cracks in rock or mud which the water is forced into which can then break off fragments. Attrition, this is where large objects such as mud or rocks smash together and break of fragments. Abrasion, this is where particulates such as sand or small stones are carried by the river and rubbed on the river walls, this works much like sandpaper and grinds away the river corrosion, this is where chemical substances in the water that are particularly caustic react and dissolve river walls and other substances
