The impact of erosion on landforming

The natural degradation of rocks is called weathering. Weathering takes place through chemical, physical and biological processes. Physical weathering includes, for example, the crushing of rock as a result of freezing water (frost weathering). It does not change the chemical composition of the rock, but causes it to disintegrate into smaller pieces. Chemical weathering occurs …
