Erosion

Erosion may be defined as the wearing down of Earth’s surface through weathering and the transportation of the particles to distant places. For example, the boulder is first loosened in a mass movement and then its pieces are carried by the stream. Similarly, moving angular pieces of rocks produce etching which cuts the surface of …

Cycle of Erosion

Cycle of Erosion/ Geomorphic Cycle: Cycle of Erosion, which is also called geographic or geomorphic cycle is an idealized model that explains the development of relief in landscapes. The model starts with the erosion that follows uplift of land above a base level and ends, if conditions allow, in the formation of a peneplain (a more or less level land surface produced by erosion over a …
