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.

it makes sedimentary rock
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 …amounts, it is not recorded as a large break away at once, or for deposition the same story
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
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.
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…rough compaction and cementation.
Erosion and deposition may eventually result in the formation of sedimentary rock.
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)
sand, pebbles, rocks,debris, hit land, glacier, water, soil, and sea
i beleve the term your looking for is oxidation. the chemical reaction that acurs when copper come in contact with oxyigen.
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).
