Types of Weathering

Weathering can be divided into two main types: Physical Weathering Chemical Weathering Physical Weathering This involves the disintegration of rocks. Climate, rock type and structure, biotic agents and man all contributes to the various physical weathering processes which cause rocks to disintegrate. By these processes rocks are broken up into smaller pieces. Thus type of…...

Denudation, Weathering, Mass Wasting and Erosion

Denudation – this includes all processes of weathering, mass movement, transportation and the natural agents of erosion through which the earth’s surface is reduced. (also termed degradation) Erosion – is the process of earth sculpting by natural agents such as running water, ice, wind and waves.    Weathering – this is the process whereby rocks exposed…...

Folding

The rocks at or near convergent plate boundaries are placed under tremendous pressure. As the plates collide, these rocks are compressed, causing folding.

Volcanic Activity

Volcanic activity includes the rising of molten material within the lithosphere or onto the Earth’s surface. Volcanic activity occurs at plate boundaries.

Earthquakes

An earthquake is a shock or series of shocks caused by a sudden movement of crustal rocks. They are caused by a sudden release of pressure within the crust.

Plate Tectonics

The Earth’s surface is not a continuous layer. Plate tectonics describes the study of crustal plates and how their movement affects the Earth’s surface.
