Storyboard Text

  • We begin with a mountain that goes through chemical weathering between rain and the rock grains.
  • As wind hits the mountain, bits of sediment fall off. This is an example of Physical weathering.
  • rock breaks up quickly when water hits it(Rain). Freezing water can create weathering that is called frost wedging.
  • fresh water from streams on the mountain move the sediment around.
  • As the wind and water erodes the rock, the sediment moves which creates the sandy beaches we sit on.
  • debris flows carry large masses of mud, water, and clay down the mountain. As this moves, sediment is carried with it.
