EROSION & AGENTS OF EROSION
The process known as weathering breaks up rocks so that they can be carriedaway by the process known as erosion.
Erosion involves the transportation of weathered material.Water, wind, ice, and waves are the agents of erosion that wear away at thesurface of the earth.
Erosion by wind is known as Aeolian (or Eolian) erosion (named after Aeolus, theGreek god of winds).Types of erosion by wind are:
In deflation wind lifts the small particles and transports them from oneplace to another.
:In wind storm the sand particle carries by wind collide with other rockmasses and causes erosion.
Breaking of transported particles which collide with each other and causesfurther erosion.Wind transport by suspension and saltation.
