Weathering & Erosion

  • Weathering is the process where rock is run, worn away or broken down into smaller and smaller pieces.

  • Once the rock has been weakened and broken up by weathering it is ready for erosion.

It can work hand in hand with physical weathering by weakening rock or uncovering it to the forces of weathering of physical or chemical.

  • Plants

  • Bacteria

  • Animals
