Weathering & Erosion
Free Games & Activities
Erosion is defined as the gradual removal of material from the Earth's crust. Most erosion happens through natural processes. Forces like wind and rain cause erosion but erosion is also affected by humans, especially from farming and agriculture. A river can create a large canyon over time by moving out rock and soil gradually. The Grand Canyon is a great example of how erosion shapes the Earth's land forms. There are many factors affecting the rate of erosion. One of the most important is climate. When there is a lot of wind or rain soil and rocks are removed easily from the landscape.
The environment is the circumstances and conditions that surround us. It involves the complex physical, chemical and biological factors like climate, soil and living things that act upon an organism or an ecological community that ultimately determine its form and its survival. In short the environment is the surroundings or conditions in which a person or animal lives and operates.
