Erosion: Process by which soil and rock particles are worn away and moved elsewhere by a transport agent such as wind, water, or ice. Soil: Material found on the surface of Earth that is composed of organic and inorganic material. Deposition: Process in which sediments, soil, and rocks are deposited or added to landmass. Chemical Weathering: Process where rocks are broken down and chemically altered. Mechanical Weathering: Process where rocks are physically broken down without any chemical changes. Transport rock/soil: Movement of material across Earth's surface by water, wind, ice or gravity. Leaching: Loss of soluble substances from the soil by heavy rains. Residual rock/soil: Material that is remaining or left over after weathering and erosion. Soil horizon: A layer generally parallel to the soil crust whose physical characteristics differ from the layers above and beneath. Parent Material: The bottom of a soil horizon, generally bedrock.
