Weathering:
the breaking down of rocks and minerals due to wind, water, ice,
chemicals or plants and animals.
Waves and wind from the ocean
wear down the coast
Weathering by the Wind
Particles of sand wear away the rocks
Plants can cause rocks to split as they grow
Erosion of river bank
by moving water
Erosion of hills to
form a valley
Deposition is when sediments and broken down substances are moved to
another location by wind, glacier ice, or water moving.
