What is wind erosion – more grades 9-12 science on

Sediments are loose Earth materials like sand that collect on the surface of the soil, in river and lake beds, and on the ocean floor. Rock weathering produces sediments. They erode from the weathering site and are transported by wind, water, ice, and mass wasting, both of which operate under gravity’s control. After transportation, sediment settles out and accumulates, a phase known as deposition. The cycles of erosion, transport, and deposition are all referred to as sedimentation. The study of sediments and sedimentation is known as sedimentology.
Rock fragments, also known as clastic sediments, mineral deposits, also known as chemical sediments, and rock fragments and organic matter, also known as organic sediments, are the three basic forms of sediment. Weathering of exposed rocks at the Earth’s surface produces dissolved minerals. Organic matter is made up of plant and animal remains that have decomposed.
Gravity, wind, water, and ice all play a part in the erosion and transport of sediments from the weathering site. Mass wasting happens when gravity alone is used to move a body of sediment or rock. Wind, water, and ice all work to erode sediment under the influence of gravity.

Natural forces shift weathered rock and soil from one site to another by erosion.

Erosion and soil

Erosion is caused by gravity, running water, glaciers, waves, and wind.

Landforms created by erosion.

Sediment is the substrate that is moved by erosion.
Erosion, weathering, and deposition are all active processes on the planet.
Gravity pushes everything into Earth’s core, allowing rock and other materials to slide downhill.
Weathering and erosion are caused by water movements (both on land and underground), which modify the land’s surface features and create underground formations.
The following are the results of these processes:

Erosion and deposition – gravity

Weathering is a natural process that breaks up rocks so that they can be swept away by erosion. Water, wind, ice, and waves are the erosion agents that wear away at the Earth’s surface.
The most effective erosional agent is water, which erodes most generally as flowing water in streams. Water, in all of its forms, is erosive. Raindrops cause splash erosion, which moves tiny soil particles (especially in dry environments). Sheet erosion occurs as water gathers on the soil’s surface and flows into small rivulets and streams.
Water is a strong erosional agent in streams. The larger the items that streams can pick up and carry, the quicker they travel. This is what is referred to as vital erosion velocity. Streams as slow as three-quarters of a mile per hour will transport fine sand.
Streams erode their banks in three ways: 1) the water pushes the sediments, 2) water corrodes the sediments by extracting ions and dissolving them, and 3) particles in the water hit bedrock and erode it.
