Erosion is a process where natural forces like water, wind, ice, and gravity wear away rocks and soil. It is a geological process, and part of the rock cycle. Erosion occurs at the Earth's surface, and has no effect on the Earth's mantle and core. Most of the energy that makes erosion happen is provided by the Sun.
Also question is, where does erosion take place in a stream?
Where do Erosion and Deposition Occur on a River? We now know that the faster a river is flowing, the more sediment it carries, and the more erosion it causes. But, not all of the water flowing in a river is moving at the same speed. The areas of the river near the banks and the bottom are slowed down by friction.
What is the difference between erosion & deposition?
Transcript of Differences between weathering, Erosion, and Deposition. weathering is the breaking down of the rocks, soil, and minerals as well as artificial materials through contact with the Earth's Atmosphere, biota and waters. Erosion is the process of eroding or being eroded by wind, water, or other natural agents
