First, water seeps into me causing me to crack, then I freeze, causing me to break open. The result of all this: large rocks are worn down to small particles. When the particles are broken off of me and stay in the same area, it is called weathering. When the particles are carried somewhere else, it is called erosion.
Hi I'm Shellrock and I will eplain to you the diffrent processes of how I was formed.
My eroded particles are carried away by wind or by rain, streams, rivers, and oceans. This process is called transportation.
Next process is the deposition. As rivers get deeper or flow into the ocean, their current slows down, and my particles (mixed with soil) sink and become a layer of sediment.
