2. Erosion

  • Erosion is simply the transportation of weathered, or broken down, materials. Wind and water can erode, and so can movements from the earth. Water can carry the broken down rocks, and so can wind. A landslide is when lots of materials are carried down a steep hill by gravity.

3. The causes of erosion are by wind, water, and ice.Water and ice erode rocks for example when it rains water gets into little cracks that naturally occur in rocks, when it gets cold water freezes and expands, after this cycle is repeated a couple of dozen times the rock gradually becomes weaker and cracks .
