Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition Comic Strip
This storyboard does not have a description.
Oh no, the wind is weathering me!
Now erosion with water is taking me somewhere!
Now I've been deposited in this marsh!
The wind is wearing away at the rock, taking small sediments off of it. This is called weathering.
Now the water is weathering me!
Erosion is when those sediments are carried away by water, wind, and ice. Erosion with water is when flowing water carries sediments away.
Deposition is when the sediments are dropped off somewhere and sometimes they compress, sometimes making more rocks or changing landforms.
Now I am a very tiny piece of sand in someone's yard because of deposition!
Now the water in this marsh weathers this small rock by taking sediment off with the flowing.
Then the wind picks up the sediment, and erosion with wind happens. The wind picks up the sediment and carries it away.
Now erosion by wind is taking me somewhere!
Now some parts of the rock are deposited in my backyard and compress into a small piece of sand.
