Exploring Weathering and Erosion
Weathering is when rocks break down into sediment due to natural processes, while erosion is when natural agencies such as wind carry sediment to another place. This book explains the different types of weathering and erosion and how these processes work together. Information on how humans can combat these natural but destructive processes is covered. Color photographs show weathering and erosion in action. A helpful diagram explains how they work together to create the world around us.
