process by which natural forces move weathered rock
Types of erosion
gravity, running water, glaciers, wind, waves
material moved by erosion
where the agents of erosion drop the sediment
force that moves rock and other materials downhill
most destructive mass movement, happens when rock and soil slide quickly down a steep slope
quick downhill movement of a combination of water rock and soil
major agent of erosion that shapes Earth's surface
large mass of ice that moves slowly over land, continental glaciers and valley glaciers
