When does erosion occur?
There is no wind or rain
Erosion can occurs by water, wind, and glaciers.
Wave erosion occurs when waves wear down rock in the ocean floor and turn them into sand. This is how some beaches' sand is made. The waves will also pick up rocks and throw t…hem down or just split them open. Waves cause erosion by the force of the wave onto the ground below it and it picks up sand and rocks. It is like when a river causes erosion but waves do it more aggressively. If the waves are strong and hit rocks and cliffs hard enough, the rock breaks into smaller particles. This is a form of mechanical erosion. Another way is when the water can sometimes get between the cracks in a rock. When it cools down, the water freezes, thus expanding the cracks and breaking it. Beach erosion is caused by: * wind * rain * ocean waves * water runoff * human and animal activity * plant growth and decay * rivers Wave is erosion is caused by the influx of large amounts of water on a shoreline. The wave action can remove large amounts of sand and rock over time.
Sheet Erosion Occurs When : water flowinq as sheets carries away sediments. (; Your Welcome!! Lol...
Mountain slopes, rocky seaside cliffs, canyon walls, slopes of hills, even sand dunes. Any vertical inclines that wind and precipitation, especially when working simult…aneously, can chisel away at or erode.
it doesn't happen on the moon ... there no wind , water or any thing else that causes erosion on the moon :)
soil erosion occurs when the surface of the soil is being washed away by erosion agents such as wind, rain, flood etc.
Erosion occurs when the soil breaks because of strong water discharge during heavy storm. Wind is also a primary cause of erosion when it blows hard enough on unprotected so…il to lift and move it away. Ocean waves, river currents, and glacial movement also erode large amounts of rock and soil. Actually, the erosion occurs because of the impact of the fluid particles on to the surface of the solid materials which are subject to this fluid flow, and in a fluid flow the amount of fluid volume per time unit. For example, L/S (Litre per second) defines the speed of the fluid element impacts. The power of this impact will increase if the direction of flow is more perpendicular to the surface. However, the amount of erosion also depends on the inherent forces between molecules of materials which are subject to fluid flow. As an example, in an elbow in a piping element, where the vector direction of the flow changes, there are more impacts and then more erosion occurs. In this situation, if we increase the flow speed, the erosion rate will increase.
Not like on Earth. The moon has no atmosphere, so there is no wind or air at all to cause erosion. However, the moon is bombarded with objects in space that normally would bur…n up in our atmosphere, resulting in all of the craters that can be seen from the Earth.
Foot path erosion occurs when an excessive number of people walk on a path, usually most common at national parks. it could also happen when a considerable amount of people wa…lk on a grass area, the grass eventually dies and a path is formed. Hope this helps.
At the outside of a bend
Dry soil is Transported away
a transporting agent, such as water must be present
When rainfall and runoff displace soil particles from inadequately protected surfaces. when there has been a lot of rain When environmental agents begin to wash away the… soil, that is when soil erosion occurs. This can be due to wind, water, or other factors.
rainfall and runoff displace soil particles from inadequately protected surfaces.
because of wind water glaciers and gravity
Erosion occurs when strong winds blow removing the top fertile layer of soil. The top soil containing clay,loam and organic matter is carried away by strong winds to many kil…ometers and deposited elsewhere forming fertile surface soil especially in Europe and North America, where productive farming has developed.Dunes, formed by mounds of sand, move by strong winds burying oases and ancient cities.Sedimentation crusts are degraded on the surface of stripped soils, weathering the rocks with abrasion at their base where they are in contact with the soil.Sheets of sand traveling close to the ground degrades crops in semi-arid zones.Wind erosion reduces the nutrients and water in soil, making the environment drier.Only large rocks are left when the lose soil is slowly shifted afar by the wind.
