What is weathering?
the natural process by which atmospheric and eviromental agents ,such as wind,rain, and decomposite rocks "Weathering" (proper spelling) is the breaking down of natural and artificial materials through contact with the earth and its atmosphere, water, and other biological factors.

What is weathering is the breakdown of a rocks minerals by water oxygen carbon dioxide living organisms and acid rain?
Weather is how nature manifests its atmospheric conditions in our surroundings. A good example is rain, or a very windy day. In many cases it can be more violent like hurrican…es or tornadoes. Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.  Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere,   just below thestratosphere. Weather generally refers to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereasclimate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time.  When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth. Weather is driven by air pressure (temperature and moisture) differences between one place and another. These pressure and temperature differences can occur due to the sun angle at any particular spot, which varies by latitude from the tropics. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the jet stream. Weather systems in the mid-latitudes, such as extratropical cyclones, are caused by instabilities of the jet stream flow. Because the Earth's axis is tilted relative to its orbital plane, sunlight is incident at different angles at different times of the year. On Earth's surface, temperatures usually range Â±40 Â°C (â40 Â°F to 100 Â°F) annually. Over thousands of years, changes in Earth's orbit affect the amount and distribution of solar energy received by the Earth and influence long-term climate and global climate change. Surface temperature differences in turn cause pressure differences. Higher altitudes are cooler than lower altitudes due to differences in compressional heating. Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a future time and a given location. The atmosphere is a chaotic system, so small changes to one part of the system can grow to have large effects on the system as a whole. Human attempts to control the weather have occurred throughout human history, and there is evidence that human activity such as agriculture and industry has inadvertently modified weather patterns. Studying how the weather works on other planets has been helpful in understanding how weather works on Earth. A famous landmark in the Solar System, Jupiter's Great Red Spot , is an anticyclonic storm known to have existed for at least 300 years. However, weather is not limited to planetary bodies. A star's corona is constantly being lost to space, creating what is essentially a very thin atmosphere throughout the Solar System. The movement of mass ejected from the Sun is known as the solar wind. short term variation in atmosphere.
weathering is the decay of the rocks of the earth's crust to the exposure to the atmosphere i.e., a process by which the rocks exposed on the surface get broken up into smalle…r particle. there are 2 types of weathering: 1.mechanical weathering 2.chemical weathering
Because the sun heats up the earth, causing differing air pressures, creating wind, rain, and all other forms of weather.
Weathering is the breaking down of rocks in situ. This includes disintegration and solution of minerals (i.e. chemical), breaking down of rock by animals and plants (biologica…l), and then there is the obvious physical weathering, including freeze-thaw and exfoliation. Erosion is the process by which rock is broken down and carried away by wind, rivers, oceans and glaciers primarily (though also including other minor and specific types).
Sunny, Mostly Sunny, Partly Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Overcast, Mostly Cloudy, Cloudy, Breezy, Windy, Gusty, Fog, Showers, Rain Showers, Rain, Drizzle, Light Rain, Moderate Rain, …Heavy Rain, Thunderstorm, Thundershower, Heavy Thunderstorm, Snow, Light Snow, and Heavy Snow. You can also use scattered or isolated to tell where. In severe weather such as tornados, fires, floods, droughts, dust storms, blizzards, and earthquakes, you need to take cover (seek shelter).
Basically, the sun heats the earth and its atmosphere causing differences in air temperature. The warm air rises from the equator and travels towards the poles.
This helps prcess exposed rocks and decompose. Weathering of rocks happen as a result of mechanical action of water and wind.
weathering is not the same as eroding!!! but it is when something brakes down or gets smaller naturally (preferably rocks). Physical weather: you can have: freeze thaw whi…ch is when water gets into a crack, freezes over night (when water freeze it expands) pushes the crack open a bit more, then more water comes in a this keeps happening until it cracks in 1/2. Physical Weathering: onion skin weathering usually happens is the dessert: the rock get so hot in the day and expands, then quickly gets freezing cold at night and contract (after many night of this happening, it sheds the outer layer, like an onion skin, and this keep happening). Warning: this happens after a very very long period of time. Chemical Weathering: chemical weathering is when acid rain or chemical in the river etc react with mineral in rocks (( usually in sedimentary rocks)). Biological Weathering: this is when roots of plants grow into rock cracks, prizing open the cracks more and more. it is also when small animal burrow into cracks etc. there are more types but these are the major ones! hope this helps :)
An example of physical weathering is animal actions and weathering is the process that breaks down rock and other substances of Earth's surface.
weathering is basically erosion. It's the the effect that wind, rain and other elements of nature affect things. The grand canyon is a result of weather. large floods eroded t…he soil that it went over to create it.
Weathering can be all kinds of things, for example, the wind blowing hard on a building above the sea and making holes in it is weathering. Also the sea hitting the cliffs and… making bits fall off it is weathering.
The type of weathering that does not alter the chemical composition of the rock is called physical weathering. The acid weathering usually alter the chemical composition o…f a rock.
