Weathering, erosion, and deposition.
Mrs: Bassant's cartoon.
You know, this beach isn't going to be like this FOREVER.
Weathering takes the rocks away when the water hits the rocks.
Then erosion(water) takes away the rocks.
Deposition drops the rocks off.
Still confused, huh? Sigh, I guess I'll have to explain it all to you...
If this happens over a long period of time, eventually it might look like this.
Understand it now? Good, I thought I'd be here for the night!
Ready to give it a go? OK, the floor is yours!
Hey, miss, can I explain what W.E.D is? Yes? OK! Weathering breaks down rocks, erosion carries the rocks away. and deposition puts the rocks down.
Good job! Maybe she'll explain it to others, then people will finally get the drift of W.E.D!!!
