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 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.
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).
' Lateralization ' is a localization of a function or activity on one side of the body in preference to the other.
Erosion occurs when a rock is carried away from where it was weathered. It makes the rock fragments rounded and small.

i dont know i ask u first
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)
because leteral erosion is a poined river.
Erosion is the process of carrying bits of rocks and other materials. There are two types of erosion called water erosion and wind erosion.
Lateral or horizontal erosion means erosion taken place on the sides of a footpath or river bank. The opposite if lateral/horizontal erosion is vertical erosion, where erosion… is taken place under the river bed or the bottom of a footpath.
causes of erosion are; 1) natural. 2) man made. natural:- floods,wind, tectonic displacement. man made:- deforestation, excessive animal gracing, making dams,ect
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
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
which of the following is not a means of waters erosion a. natural spring b. streams c. rivers d. ocean waves
Lateralization refers to the function of the left or right sides of the brain.
