Erosion

Erosion is the transportation of sediments and rocks. This can happen for instance by wind, water, ice and gravity.

The landscape around us, can be impacted by erosion of e.g. the wind constantly flowing by and picking up very fine sand or the water flowing by, that is able to pick up larger fragments and transport them further away.
