What kinds of erosion are there?
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.

Water, wind, and soil.
There are many erosion such as: wind,water,sand,sea,glacier and soil
sand, pebbles, rocks,debris, hit land, glacier, water, soil, and sea
Hi to who asks this q WRONG WIND WATER WIND AND GRAVITY
deflation, loess, abrasion, and sandblasting.
Erosion is the result of natural disasters such as landslides. When there is Soil Erosion in that given part of the soil, the soil's topsoil is very thin or washed away. When …there is Soil Erosion, the soil will be not good to be planted with. Sometimes Soil Erosion can be good too in means of adding topsoil to the other parts of the soil that has less or no more topsoil.
The main types are Wind erosion and Water erosion.
When there is no wind erosion the surface is cracked all around.The surface is also dry like the surface mars.
Types of: Erosion Glaciers carrying/dragging materialRivers carrying/dragging materialWind carrying/dragging material: -Traction:Rocks rolling along the floor -Saltation:Roc…ks bouncing along -Suspension:Rocks being carrying in the air Weathering Biological: -Plant roots -Animals burrowing -(Break down of rocks in situ by organisms) Chemical: -Acid rain: nitric acid; sulfuric acid (SO2 from factories and water); carbonic acid (CO2 and water) Physical: -Wind -Hail -Exfoliation (constant change in heat causes rock to stretch to the point which it breaks apart into layers)
