Erosion 9 07

  1. 2. Weathering
  2. 3. Weathering <ul><li>When rocks are broken into smaller pieces (called sediment) by weather, tumbling in moving water, banging into each other, repeated freezing and thawing, tree roots, or chemical changes such as acid rain. </li></ul>
  3. 12. Erosion
  4. 13. Erosion <ul><li>When rock, sediment, or soil is transported (moved) from one place to another by: </li></ul>
  5. 14. Erosion <ul><li>When rock, sediment, or soil is transported (moved) from one place to another by: </li></ul><ul><li>Moving water (rain runoff, rivers, etc.) </li></ul>
  6. 15. Erosion <ul><li>When rock, sediment, or soil is transported (moved) from one place to another by: </li></ul><ul><li>Moving water (rain runoff, rivers, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul>
  7. 16. Erosion <ul><li>When rock, sediment, or soil is transported (moved) from one place to another by: </li></ul><ul><li>Moving water (rain runoff, rivers, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul><ul><li>Glaciers (thick ice sheets) </li></ul>
  8. 18. Erosion <ul><li>When rock, sediment, or soil is transported (moved) from one place to another by: </li></ul><ul><li>Moving water (rain runoff, rivers, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul><ul><li>Glaciers (thick ice sheets) </li></ul><ul><li>Landslides </li></ul>
  9. 20. <ul><li>Some effects </li></ul><ul><li>of </li></ul><ul><li>Erosion </li></ul>
  10. 32. Deposition
  11. 33. Deposition When the material (sediment, soil, etc.) that has been eroded stops moving and is allowed to settle to the bottom, such as at a delta where a river flows into the ocean.
  12. 44. Sediment is deposited in layers
