Erosion is when soil or sediment is carried away by rain, wind, water, or ice.
Weathering is the process of a rock being broken down into sediment and erosion is the process of the sediment being carried away. Desposition is the process of the sediment being set down.
When mountains are worn away by weathering and the sediment is carried away, it is called erosion. This occurs over time. Rapid erosion is possible and is known to cause landslides.
Waves are energy carried by the water, and this energy pounds away at rocks on the shore, eventually wearing them down. Sediment is carried back into the water by the receding waves. As the waves come to shore again, the sediment acts like sandpaper, slowly wearing away at the shoreline.
The sediment carried by the river is filling up the delta.
There are two terms to be used:Weathering - the wearing away of rocks in situErosion - the wearing away and taking away of rocksBoth are responsible for the production of sediment, but mostly erosion as the sediment is then carried by the body which removed is as sediment, rather than lying as scree, which is not quite the same.
it erodes and gets carried away then it gets deposited and then it goes back through the rock cycle
Can you be more specific? Sounds like Beach Erosion which is already your answer.
Water, wind, or ice.
Erosion from the water or wind wears away the rock and is carried into another area. In that area the sediment builds up and if there is enough sediment and pressure, it forms into a sedimentary rock.
They are in solution.
Is the sediment carried by the waves and the currents
The answer is "Deposition"
Wind-carried sediment falls to the ground when wind slows down or some obstacle, such as a boulder or clump of grass, traps the windblown sand and other sediment. When it comes into contact with any obstacle.
Silt and Sediment.
By a river? Deposition.
Sediment is dirt, rocks, and sand carried by a river.
When something is weathered down by weathering and erosion, material called sediment is left behind as the large amounts are carried away. The sediment shapes together and forms rocks called sedimentary rocks.
