The four types or mechanisms of erosion are rill erosion, gully erosion, stream bank erosion, and sheet erosion. In sheet erosion a thin layer of the surface is removed. In rill erosion, small rivulets of running water gather together and cut small channels. In gully erosion, rills enlarge to form bigger channels too large to be removed by normal tillage. Finally, streambank erosion is the washing away of soil from banks of streams and rivers. Erosion is a natural, continuous process, but agricultural practices can speed erosion, resulting in lost soil, lost soil fertility, air pollution, and water pollution. Wind and water are the main agents that move soil.

How is landslide different from other kinds of erosion or deposition?

A Landslide is a large proportion of mud/rock that gives way under a lot of water/pressure which will literally slide down the face it is based upon. Erosion is only in small

What is 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

What does erosion do?

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

What kind of rocks are formed from weathering and erosion?

  Sedimentary rocks are formed from chemical and physical weathering of rock, their subsequent erosion and transportation to a place of deposit, and their lithification th

What is the 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

What is an 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
